The NMSU Library welcomes members of the community to use its resources. As a land-grant institution, serving the academic and intellectual pursuits of all New Mexico residents is an integral part of its mission.
These services are available to all visitors:
Community users are welcome to use the library’s collections, services and pleasant physical spaces during regular library hours (http://lib.nmsu.edu/aboutlib/libhours.shtml).
Public Use of Computers Visitors may use selected workstations on the 1st Floor of Zuhl and Branson Libraries These workstations provide basic Internet access to the library's electronic resources. Community access to these publicly available computers is metered for one hour use. Community users may renew access unless there is a queue.
Electronic Resources Access to our subscription/licensed electronic databases is available onsite. Remote access is not permitted due to licensing restrictions. A wide variety of databases (with remote access) are available from a user’s local public library or the New Mexico State Library (http://elportalnm.org)
Circulation/Borrowing Privileges Community users may apply for a guest borrowers card (http://lib.nmsu.edu/services/documents/guestborrower.pdf) and can borrow up to five items at a time, for a four week loan period, with no renewals. If an item is lost, damaged, or not returned, community users will be charged the replacement cost plus a $15.00 (non-refundable) processing fee.
Interlibrary Loan Interlibrary loan is not available to community users, guests, or alumni. Community users are urged to use their local public library’s interlibrary loan service.
