You can now access the updated New Mexico State Documents Classification System online in the comfort of the place of your own choosing:  New Mexico State Documents Classification System.

We will be periodically revising the list to add older classification numbers and will be including agency histories in addition to creating new classification numbers.

Wondering how this classification got started? For historical interest see the original 1978 version.

The NM State Documents Classification System is based on the U.S. federal government’s SuDocs Classification in that New Mexico state publications are assigned classification based on the agency that creates the resource.
