New Digitized Collections

University Archives Adds Digital Collections
Almost 600 historical photographs of campus buildings, landscapes, and interiors were recently added to the UNM University Archives digital collections. The photographs, ranging in date from the turn of the century through the 1980s, are available online at the University Archives website. An additional 60 photos documenting Lobo sports teams - including the 1901 Lobo Women's Basketball Team and 1933 Women's Tennis Team - have also been added to the University Archives

Jos Guadalupe Posada Collection of Mexican Popular Prints
The online collection includes lithographs, etchings, and engravings by Posada from three different collections in the Center for Southwest Research. Subjects range from humorous to didactic, romantic to religious and political. Posada's signature calaveras are represented, as are sensational crime stories, supernatural subjects and popular songs. This project was made possible with funding from the Center for Regional Studies.
