NMSU Library Archives and Special Collections currently is open to NMSU-affiliated researchers (students, faculty and staff) by appointment only. Appointments can be made by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours in advance of visit. Hours available are Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm. No more than two researchers can be allowed in the research room at a time and no guests may accompany researchers. Because of the current health crisis, we are only able to accommodate on-site researchers with a valid NMSU ID. Safety protocols (face coverings, social distancing, hand washing) are required. We are happy to provide reference service for all other researchers via email.
