The University Libraries Digital Initiatives and Scholarly Communications (DISC) has created a new online home for the New Mexico Historical Review. The journal is now open access for viewing previous issues from 1926 to 2013 in the UNM Digital Repository. The most recent six years will remain behind a moving paywall.
Founded in 1926, the New Mexico Historical Review is one of the oldest and most distinguished historical journals in the country. Lansing Bloom, its first editor, brought the Review to UNM in 1929. The journal publishes scholarly research on New Mexico and the Southwest, including Northern Mexico. Each issue is filled with scholarly articles, book reviews and notes on new publications, news and current events. All issues contain rare photographs, maps and drawings.
The New Mexico Historical Review is sponsored by the UNM Department of History in the College of Arts and Sciences and published by The University of New Mexico. The journal is published as a service to the citizens of the state and scholars in New Mexico, the United States, and around the world. New Mexico Historical Review operations and production are supported by the assistance of the New Mexico State Legislature, The University of New Mexico, and by the generosity of the journal's sponsors, patrons, benefactors and subscribers. The UNM Center for Regional Studies has funded graduate-student editorial fellowships at the Review for nearly three decades.
The New Mexico Historical Review is available by subscription in both print and electronic formats. The new online home has made it easy to purchase a subscription to the New Mexico Historical Review through the UNM Marketplace. The Review is one of many open access journals hosted on UNM’s Digital Repository.
DISC is located in the basement of Zimmerman Library and is dedicated to helping students, staff, and faculty with their research needs. DISC helps maintain the UNM Digital Repository, an open access institutional repository created to preserve, gather and disseminate scholarship, research and cultural works created by UNM faculty, staff and students. DISC has collaborated with a variety of departments and organizations to create projects such as digital guides celebrating the works of Tony Hillerman and Rudolfo Anaya as well as a digital exhibit that celebrates historical New Mexican women.
