Bond Issue C to benefit General Library

The UNM General Library (UNMGL) stands to gain more than $900,000 if New Mexico voters approve GO Bond Issue C in the November general election.

“We can purchase serials or books or put the funds toward access needs with software and hardware,” said Jan Dodson Barnhart, program manager, UNMGL.

Bond Issue C is a vote for library books and educational resources for public school libraries, public and community libraries as well as publicly supported colleges and universities.

“State, county and higher education people have united to create guidelines and a formula for allocation. The Commission on Higher Education and New Mexico Consortium of Academic Libraries support the bond issue,” said Barnhart.

“Passage of the bond would greatly benefit UNMGL,” said Fran Wilkinson, deputy dean, UNMGL. “For the last couple of years our acquisition budget has been static. This money is critical to the library to support both acquisitions and to prevent large scale serials cancellations,” she said.
