Message from Angela Barlow

I would like to express gratitude for such a warm welcome to the University of Mississippi Libraries. When I began serving as development officer just five months ago, I had minimal knowledge of our libraries’ history. I have now had the opportunity to meet a number of individuals who shared stories about the library. I am eager to meet each of you in hopes that you, too, will share your love of and interest in our libraries.

As I have learned, our libraries have a vivid history. Now is our opportunity to assure an even brighter future for them. With the support of private funding and individual gifts, the University Libraries will continue to provide services at the highest levels for our students, researchers, faculty, staff and community. With your help, many more individuals will have stories to share about our libraries for years to come.

If you have any thoughts or questions about supporting the University Libraries, please feel free to contact me at 662-915-3181 or
