In November we sent a survey out to all of you requesting your feedback regarding what you would like to add to the statewide resources available via El Portal to all the citizens of New Mexico. Here is a summary of your valuable input which will help us provide the best and most needed resources that we can afford.
The first and foremost resource that you all would like us to add is skill improvement/testing preparation, examples of which are Learning Express Library or Gale’s Testing & Education Reference Center.
The second resource that you all would like us to add is an encyclopedia and you overwhelmingly preferred the World Book Encyclopedia.
Now that we know what you would like most to have, we will begin working on funding for resource additions to the statewide databases.
Thank you for your participation in our decision making process!
