The University Libraries includes the Ned R. McWherter Library and four branch libraries: Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, Chemistry, Mathematical Sciences, and Music. Each branch is contiguous to the department or school it serves.

The University Libraries’ collection totals over one million print volumes. The collection also contains information resources in many other formats, including 3.4 million microform pieces, over 9 million archival pieces, 90 licensed databases, 500 federal databases, and a variety of other formats. The Government Publications Department, located in McWherter Library, is the Regional Depository for Federal Documents for the State of Tennessee. The department also serves as a depository for all State of Tennessee documents. The Special Collections Department houses collections of original papers, manuscripts, and rare materials that document the history and culture of the mid-south.

The University Libraries’ holdings are indexed in the tomCat online catalog, which is available on over 200 workstations located throughout the libraries, on the campus network, and through the Internet. Faculty and staff of the University Libraries are available to assist library users with identifying and making the best use of library resources. The Interlibrary Loan staff will borrow resources from other libraries when they are not owned by the University Libraries. The University Libraries maintains agreements with several local academic libraries that enable direct borrowing by students, faculty, and staff of the University of Memphis.
