Welcome to the UNM-Los Alamos Library!
The UNM-LA Library staff welcomes you to visit the library and to take advantage of the various resources and services we offer. In fulfillment of the library's mission, we are committed to supporting the learning and instructional needs of UNM-LA students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding communities through our facility, public services, collection, and technological resources.
The library facility, located in the Learning Center, offers a pleasant and comfortable learning environment made up of a variety of study spaces including a loft, carrels, reading tables, 3 group study rooms, an eating area, and 10 public computer work stations. The library is also a show place for the art work of students and invited artists.
Public services include reference and circulation services, which are available to all library patrons during open hours. Reserve and interlibrary loan services are available to UNM-LA students, faculty, and staff. Community members interested in interlibrary loan privileges should speak to a member of the library staff.
A growing number of books, magazines, newspapers, videos, sound recordings, and many online resources comprise the library's collection. We are proud of our distinctive Southwest Collection (located in the loft), which includes a wide range of materials from geology to regional history, from folklore to southwestern architecture.
The library's information literacy program (also known as library skills instruction) teaches students how to find, evaluate, and use information from a variety of resources including books and other physical formats, reference materials, periodicals, online databases, and web resources.
We are fortunate to offer state-of-the-art computer work stations, which provide access to the Microsoft Office suite, the worldwide web, myUNM, LIBROS (the online catalog) and many online resources. Wireless internet is also available in the library.
