The Celebrating New Mexico Statehood website was a resource for exploring New Mexico's history and culture. An official project of the New Mexico State Centennial in 2012, it was jointly funded by the University of New Mexico Libraries and the Center for Regional Studies. It included cultural heritage collections of photographs, documents, maps, posters, art, music, and video from from twelve New Mexico museums and libraries. State history lesson plans for K-12 students were developed by University Library staff and faculty. The website was decommissioned in 2020; some materials are preserved here and others can be found using the links below.
