General Special Collections

Our General Special Collections contains volumes related to Mississippi in some way: they are written by Mississippians; and are about Mississippi, etc. In the physical collection housed on the University of Mississippi campus, we collect Mississippi authors in every conceivable language: books on Mississippi history and culture and books related to the University of Mississippi. We also have collections containing manuscripts of several sorts: literary; civil war; civil rights; family histories; business history, etc. Our digital collections make some of our more fragile collections accessible to the public.
