Archives & Special Collections
Archives & Special Collections:

Located on the third floor of the J.D. Williams Library, the Department of Archives and Special Collections houses important collections of Mississippiana. Since 1975, our primary purpose has been to acquire, conserve, and make accessible rare books, manuscripts, maps, visual and audio materials, and ephemera related to the University of Mississippi, the state of Mississippi, and the Blues.

The Department of Archives and Special Collections invites patron visits during our regular hours from 8:00 to 5:00, Monday through Friday, except during selected University holidays.

The Department of Archives and Special Collections also maintains two blogs. This Week in Mississipi History takes a look at historical events while the Blues Blog focuses in on anything and everything Blues related. Be sure to take a look at all of our library blogs!
