The Clark Field Archive & Library (CFAL) is jointly operated by the
Maxwell Museum and the UNM Department of Anthropology.

Feel free to drop by and check out all that the Clark Field has to offer. We are a great resource for research projects and papers as well as a quiet study area. Our collections encompass about 10,000 books and over 225 journal titles. It also houses a complete collection of Ph.D. dissertations, selected masters theses, and undergraduate honors theses from the Anthropology Department, a map collection, and an extensive collection of reprints. All these materials deal with anthropological subjects and serve the entire UNM anthropology community, including the Maxwell Museum and its Association, the Anthropology Department, and the Office of Contract Archaeology.

About half the CFAL's collections are unique on the UNM campus, and perhaps in the state. CFAL collections are cataloged on Libros, UNM's computerized system. The catalog may be accessed at almost any computer on campus and via the Internet.

Almost all of CFAL's materials have been donated, with the exception of several dozen journal subscriptions supported by the Anthropology Department and MMA.
