New Mexico State University course catalogs have been added to the NMSU Library’s digital collections. Requests to see past catalogs are common, and the project allows the catalogs to be more widely and readily available to the public. The course catalog collection provides electronic access to undergraduate academic catalogs from 1890 to the present.
Nathan Brown, Digital Projects Librarian and director of the Library’s new digitization lab, said, “The collection will ultimately contain graduate catalogs as well, and current catalogs will be added as they are released.”
The collection is available at http://contentdm.nmsu.edu:2011/cdm/landingpage/collection/catalogs.
Additional digitized collections currently found on the Library’s growing digital collections landing page include:
- “NMSU Extension and Experiment Stations Publications,” a collection of documents dating from 1890 to the present about agriculture, health, economics, family life and natural resources
- “New Mexico Statehood Centennial,” a link to 580 historical photographs
- “NMSU Library Newsletters” from 1996 to the present
- “Photographic Collections,” more than 500,000 historical photos from the Rio Grande Historical Collections
- “The Round-Up,” NMSU’s student newspaper and its predecessor “The New Mexico Collegian,” published since 1893
