Summaries of Past NMGS Programs

I've been receiving requests from NMGS members out of state to post information about our past programs. Well, I have summarized a few of our programs - eight to be exact - on this blog. You can access these summaries by clicking "Past NMGS Presentations" on the right margin of this blog, or you can click on this link.

Hopefully, one of these days we will be able to videotape some of our programs. I'll let you know when we do that.

NMGS Program February 20, 2010

Recently, it came to our attention that another organization was having a program at the Special Collection Library at the same time as our February program. We did some research, and discovered that The Hispanic Culture Preservation League is actually having their program in a different room than ours. Our program will be in Botts Hall, while their program will be in the Center for the Book. Therefore, there is no conflict between the two programs.

Please see the announcement below for information about our program.
