Southern Miss Special Collections Displays Student Curated Exhibits

Special Collections at the University of Southern Mississippi hosted an exhibit opening April 25 in McCain Library room 305 to highlight three exhibits curated by Southern Miss students.

Two years ago, Special Collections created an exhibits program that allows students the opportunity to curate mini-exhibits, featuring materials from the library’s collections.  Students learn how to select items for display, install the materials, write label and exhibit text, and how to publicize the exhibit.  This year’s exhibits feature the work of two undergraduate history majors and an English doctoral student.
