About New Mexico News Plus
New Mexico News Plus connects people to the government sources involved with current news stories and headlines. Federal and State government information is the main focus of the page. It is updated by New Mexico library staff in response to the news of the day. The site highlights issues of specific interest to our state and local communities, as well as items of broader interest for the Southwest region.
New Mexico News Plus is regularly updated daily. Posting times for weekend updates can vary, but major stories from the weekend are usually posted on Monday.
The news sources reviewed include:
- Santa Fe New Mexican
- Albuquerque Journal
- Albuquerque Journal North
- Las Cruces Sun-News
- El Paso Times
- KUNM News Roundup
In an attempt to reflect both national as well as specific local interest stories, focus is given to local media, but national news sources are occasionally included in the daily posting. Links are made primarily to Federal agency documents and Web sites and New Mexico state and local government sites. The page also occasionally provides links to the web pages of other pertinent associations and non-profit organizations mentioned in the news.
Content is submitted by librarians experienced in the location and retrieval of government information.
