Memo to State Publication Program Libraries
December
 
Happy Holidays Depositories!
 
Thank you to all of you who were able to make it to the annual meeting last month. We are already looking for ideas for next years meeting!   For those of you who were not able to come we have included handouts and other information from the meeting. Please contact us if you have any questions.
 
This shipment has some long awaited material including the new Bluebook. This document is library staple for New Mexico history and information about different segments of government. Check out the Secretary of State website to see the online version and listen to the state song in English and Spanish, http://www.sos.state.nm.us/sos-bluebook.html .
 
One of the big topics in the news right now is employment- take a look at the Facts & Figures from the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions for a look at industry in New Mexico, then check out the Workforce Reports and compare the number in the 2007 Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages to see how changes in the economy are effecting jobs in our state.  
 
One of our flashiest publications in this shipment is the 2007 Annual Report from the Commissioner of Public Lands. The section on Renewable Energy and the grafts depicting how much revenue is coming from oil and gas are interesting and surprisingly attractive.
