The Skeen Library welcomes gifts of books, significant archival materials, art, and
monetary donations to our foundation account. Your gifts can help us to provide valuable
resources to New Mexico Tech and the general region, as well as to preserve the history
and culture of both the university and the Middle Rio Grande area. Donations enable
the library to obtain materials that we normally cannot acquire with our budget, but
which enhance the lives and research of our students and faculty.
You may also designate your gift for a specific purpose. Some ways you might consider

Gifts of Library Materials
The Skeen Library welcomes the gifts of books, manuscripts, art, and other archival
materials. Although we appreciate all donations, occasionally some gift items are
not appropriate for our collections.
We will be happy to place a special bookplate acknowledging any gift.
Archives welcome gifts of materials, including individual items and collections, which
are suitable for its various collections and will work with prospective donors to
develop a mutually acceptable deed of gift agreement. We especially appreciate materials
appropriate for inclusion as archival materials, materials relating to the history
of New Mexico Tech, and materials relating to the region. We also accept items that
would be considered rare books.
Archives is also grateful for monetary gifts that enhance development, management,
and preservation of its collections. Supplementing large gifts of materials with cash
endowments is one way to expedite the processing and facilitate the maintenance of
the collection you give to the Skeen Library.
Endowments provide funds that keep on giving. Only a percentage of the interest from
an endowment is used, while the principle remains intact and is increased by part
of the earned income. If you wish, you may contribute to the existing Library Endowment
through the Foundation.
