The mission of the UM Libraries is to inspire intellectual discovery, research, creativity and lifelong learning, and exhibits within the walls of the Library should strive to meet those goals. The UM Libraries is committed to presenting high-quality exhibits that connects to the University of Mississippi’s Mission and Vision, including the UM curriculum, faculty and student research, campus organizations and events, and current events. Exhibits must observe the tenets of the UM Creed while still preserving the university’s commitment to academic freedom.
UM Libraries hosts general exhibits in hallway cabinets on the 2nd floor, a display case on the 1st floor, mobile display cases around the building. Archives and Special Collections has rotating exhibit cases highlighting its major collections -- Blues Archives, Modern Political Archives, Visual Collections, General Special Collections, and University Archives -- on the 3rd floor outside its entrance, and a year-long exhibit in the Faulkner Room within the department.
