NMSU Library receives funding for Agricultural Publication Digitization Project

The New Mexico State University Library was awarded a $5,000 grant by the U.S. Agricultural Information Network Preservation (USAIN) and Digital Library Committee to digitize the Agricultural Extension Service?s special reports, extension leaflets and selected serials.

Funding was made available through a collaboration between USAIN, the National Agricultural Network Information Collaborative (AgNIC) and the Center for Research Libraries. Project Ceres aims to support projects that further the national effort to preserve historical agricultural information.

Researchers and the general public may access the full text and images of more than 3,200 of NMSU?s Cooperative Extension Service publications and Agricultural Experiment state publications for free through the library?s website, http://lib.nmsu.edu/CES_AESPubs, and through AgNIC.
