Collections from the New Mexico State University Library


  • The Rio Grande Historical Collections houses more than 500,000 items in its photographic collections, with materials that cover almost 150 years of image making in New Mexico and the Southwest and pertain to all aspects of the state's cultural heritage. Paralleling the scope of the documentary collections, RGHC photographic materials focus on New Mexico and the border region, emphasizing social history, the development, expansion and sometimes abandonment of population centers, ranching, mining, agriculture, irrigation, and the unique cultural heritage of the area. The materials come from family photograph collections as well as the collections of several major southern New Mexico photographic studios. Additionally, the University Archives photograph collection contains more than 100,000 images documenting the history of New Mexico State University, from its formation to the present day.
