Community Calendar

On our home page, in the sidebar under Research Assistance, you'll find the link to our Resource Center. This is a grouping of websites & databases for your use-great if you need last minute help with a research paper, or copies of legal forms, even investment advice. But did you know you can also connect to many local sites of interest, from the Albuquerque Journal to New Mexico Magazine? Did you know you can find out local events from New Mexico CultureNet & other resources? New Mexico CultureNet lists events for Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Taos, & surrounding areas. You can search the calendar, check out just this weekend's happenings, & limit your search by category. Adult & children's events are included.
