We find [Fe/H]=-1.97±0.13 dex for NGC 5466, and [Fe/H]=-2.06±0.13 dex for NGC 5024, and the typical abundance pattern for globular clusters for the remaining elements, e.g. both show evidence for mixing in their light element abundance ratios (C, N), and asymptotic giant branch contributions in their heavy element abundances (Y, Ba, and Eu). These clusters were selected to examine chemical trends that may correlate them with the Sgr dwarf galaxy remnant, but at these low metallicities no obvious differences from the Galactic abundance pattern are found. Regardless, we compare our results from the optical and infrared analyses to find that oxygen and silicon abundances determined from the infrared spectral lines are in better agreement with the other α-element ratios and with smaller random errors. Description: Optical spectra were gathered with the High Resolution Spectrograph (HRS; Tull 1998, Proc. SPIE, 3355, 387) on the HET. The HRS was configured at resolution R=30000 with 2x2 pixel binning using the 2 arcsec fibre. The HRS splits the incoming beam on to two CCD chips, from which the spectral regions 6000-7000 Å (red chip) and 4800-5900 Å (blue chip) were extracted for this work. Two standard stars were also observed, RGB stars with previously published spectral analyses in each of the GCs M3 and M13.
