How to Use Special Collections

An introduction to using Special Collections holdings at HSLIC.

The New Mexico Health Historical Collection


HSLIC's Special Collections, the New Mexico Health Historical Collection, documents the history of health and healthcare in the state and the Southwest by collecting and preserving materials that include oral histories, organizational records, rare books, photographs, artifacts, and a monograph collection.

Collecting strengths include the history of tuberculosis treatment in the state, the UNM Health Sciences Center, public health, New Mexico's medical providers, and the oral history collection. 

Materials are non-circulating and are used in the Library.

Special Collections is open to all researchers. You do not need to be affiliated with UNM.
