The New Mexico State University Library has been awarded $903 by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Education Foundation. The purpose of the SME Library Award is to initiate or upgrade a manufacturing library that supports a manufacturing engineering or technology curriculum.


rd is one of six awarded this year. The project director is Joanna Szurmak, the engineering librarian in the Branson Library reference department.

The University Library features a substantial collection of national and international standards and local, county and New Mexico codes as well as general resources in the area of manufacturing education. SME support will enable the library to upgrade, update and expand its collection.

The library also received an SME Library Award in 1998.
