How to Use Special Collections

An introduction to using Special Collections holdings at HSLIC.


Archivists and historians use the Chicago Manual of Style to cite materials. 

Finding aids in New Mexico Archives Online include preferred citations. 

If you are unsure about how to cite an item in an archival collection, please ask the archivist. 

You might want to use a free citation management tool such as Zotero.
