Recognizing that scholarly literature is a necessary and valuable research tool, the Robert E. and Evelyn McKee Foundation has awarded the New Mexico State University Library the 2015 McKee Foundation grant of $15,000. The award allows the NMSU Library to purchase the entire contents of ENGnetBASE, which consists of over 3,000 e-book titles covering civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical and mining engineering subject areas.
This digital library is readable over any device including mobile phones, through its app, allowing our students to access these resources 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Not only will users be able to access the 3,000+ e-book titles, but at the end of one year, the titles that received the most use will be permanent additions to the NMSU Library collections.
The Robert E. and Evelyn McKee Foundation has generously supported the Library since 1995. Robert E. McKee is remembered as the “master builder” whose company, McKee General Contractors, constructed seven buildings on the NMSU campus.
