The New Mexico Coalition for Literacy (NMCL) is a member of the SALSA (System Access to Libraries in State Agencies) Consortium, which is a group of New Mexico state agency libraries. SALSA provides its members with a web-based search engine with which to locate holdings in the various member libraries. At the NMCL, we maintain the Resource Center Special Lending Library (RC), and SALSA allows our tutors, trainers, students, program administrators, and boards of directors to locate materials in the RC for their use with affiliate adult literacy programs around the state. NOTE: ONLY INDIVIDUALS AFFILIATED WITH AN ADULT LITERACY PROGRAM IN NEW MEXICO MAY BORROW MATERIALS FROM THE RC!
