Archives & Special Collections Private Consultation

Archives and Special Collections contains papers, photographs, films, and sound recordings related to Mississippi, the University of Mississippi, and the American South. The four units within the department, Traditional Special Collections, the Blues Archive, the Visual Collections, and the Modern Political Archive, are managed by five faculty members and two staff who assist numerous patrons with their research needs. They also give regular presentations on Mississippi’s history and culture. Another function of Special Collections is the creation of exhibitions;  the upcoming exhibit entitled “William Faulkner’s Books: A Bibliographic Exhibit” will open in January 2014 and remain up for a year. Digitization of materials in Special Collections is also a priority as reflected in the large amount of our materials now online in our digital collections.
