Magazines Online for New Mexico Libraries

Magazines Online for New Mexico Libraries
In an effort to bring reliable electronic information resources to as many New Mexicans as possible, the New Mexico State Library provides Magazines Online, a collection of databases of magazines and journals to public, academic and high school libraries in New Mexico via the Internet. Currently, Magazines Online consists of 9 Gale InfoTrac databases. Public, academic and high school libraries are authorized to provide passwords to their patrons for remote access, thus giving any New Mexican access to these databases from remote locations.

For more information about providing this service in your library, contact Mark Adams at the State Library (505) 476-9710, or e-mail Mark Adams.
