The New Mexico State University Library was recently awarded $903 by the Society of Manufacturing
Engineers (SME) Education Foundation. The purpose of the SME Library Award is to initiate or upgrade a
manufacturing library that supports a manufacturing engineering or technology curriculum. The award is one
of six awarded this year. The project director is Joanna Szurmak, the engineering librarian in the Branson
Library reference department.
The University Library features a substantial collection of national and international standards and local,
county and New Mexico codes as well as general resources in the area of manufacturing education. SME
support will enable the Library to upgrade, update and expand its collection to better serve students and
faculty in New Mexico State University’s manufacturing education program. The Library also received an
SME Library Award in 1998.
