Awarding-winning NMSU authors and historians Dr. Louis R. Sadler and Dr. Charles Harris will give a talk about their use of government publications in conducting historical research on Wednesday, April 7, at 2:30 p.m., on the second floor of NMSU’s Branson Library.
The free public program is part of the NMSU Library’s Government Documents Centennial Celebration. The talk is sponsored by the Library and NMSU’s Southwest and Border Cultures Institute.
Sadler and Harris have collaborated on several publications about the history of the Borderlands and have used the government documents collection extensively in their work researching New Mexico history and the history of the militia which later became the New Mexico National Guard. Special guest Kathy Brazee Bayer of the U.S. Government Printing Office will introduce the program with a discussion of the history and role of the Federal Depository Library Program.
