Happy 50th to Paul Meek Library at Univ of TN!

According to govdoc-l poster Ania Lasota, the Paul Meek Library had a terrific 50th anniversary as a Federal Depository Library:

This week we have celebrated 50th Anniversary of our depository status.  We did great: we had coverage by a local radio station, and also  Jackson, local and college paper. We ran information about the docs anniversary on the web, and the campus main electronic marquee. The staff put together a nice display of government documents and posters,  and we had a great reception – which went really well!  Our guests included Congressman and Mrs. John Tanner, Mayor, Chancellor, and others.  As an extra enticement for students to attend our event, we had a bunch of door prizes which local businesses graciously donated to us.

Our hats are off to Ania and others at the Paul Meek Library who did such a terrific job ensuring visibilty for their event!

It looks like it impressed Rep. Tanner as well who is reportedly planning to return to the library to give a lecture.
