Using Collections

The Anderson Reading Room is the access point for all materials held in the Center for Southwest Research and Special Collections. The room is located in the historic west wing of Zimmerman Library. The collections are housed in closed stacks from which a staff member will retrieve your materials.

Please note that appointments are not taken and materials may not be requested in advance of your visit. Retrieval time is generally less than ten minutes.

Free self-service scanning is available, as well as other duplication options.

The Center serves a wide range of students and researchers from throughout New Mexico, the U.S., and the world. If you are traveling from far away, please check our hours.
