The New Mexico State University Library has received a gift of $6,000 from the Robert E. and Evelyn McKee Foundation of El Paso. The gift will be used for the purchase of current engineering reference materials for the Library’s collection.
Engineering Librarian Paula Johnson said that the gift will enable the Library to purchase more than fifty new engineering titles. These include Bioelectronics, Biomedical, and Bioinspired Systems; Disorder and Strain-induced Complexity in Functional Materials; and Geotechnical and Geophysical Site Characterization.
The McKee Foundation has supported the Library since 1995. Robert E. McKee is remembered as the “master builder” whose construction company, McKee Construction, built seven buildings on the NMSU campus. McKee also built major structures in El Paso as well as Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta and other cities.
The selection of the engineering resources is being conducted by Johnson. For more information, please contact her at email@example.com or (575) 646-7251.
