Department of Archives & Special Collections


Special Collections welcomes questions from offsite patrons. Unfortunately, we are unable to spend more than ten minutes researching a question. For large research projects and complex questions, patrons are encouraged to visit Special Collections in person or contact us for information about researchers for hire in our area. Try our FAQ page, come visit the archive, send us an e-mail, or call.

With a vacancy in the Visual Curator position and the ongoing limitations imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Archives & Special Collections will be limited in the amount of service it can provide to inquiries about visual collections and duplication requests. Responses and transactions may be delayed two weeks or more. We regret any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience in this matter. Please direct your inquiries about our photographs and recordings to archivesdept@olemiss.edu.
