In its role as the only large academic law library in the State of New Mexico, the law library provides library services and information resources to Law School faculty, staff, students, and alumni. The Law Library also strives to provide services and resources to members of the general public, public libraries, New Mexico legal practitioners, UNM faculty and students, faculty and students from other educational institutions, including paralegal programs and state government and court system employees. Due to shrinking budgets, the UNM Law Library cannot visit communities outside of the Albuquerque area on a regular basis. We therefore have created this LibGuide for public librarians around the state to help their patrons.
The UNM Law Library serves all New Mexico citizens as the only large academic legal research facility in the state.
