From the Albuquerque Journal:
Collections in the state’s largest library system would continue to grow under a proposal to establish an additional repository.
The University of New Mexico Board of Regents’ Finance and Facilities Committee voted Tuesday to recommend a proposal that would allow the university’s library system to house its overflow of permanent collections in an existing 14,000-gross-square-foot warehouse area in the UNM Press building located on the south campus in Albuquerque.
The proposal now goes to the full board of regents for consideration during its next meeting on Monday.[Clip]
Without the new space, the library would have to dispose of collections or refuse new publications.
The estimated cost of the project is $400,000 – $300,000 from Provost Office building renewal and replacement money and $100,000 from library reserves.
