McCain Library Under Construction

Construction of the McCain Library and Archives, the home of Southern Miss’ Special Collections, will begin on Monday, May 13. Special Collections will be open normal operating hours during construction, and a small number of collections may be impacted.

Until further notice, please enter the building using the north entrance, opposite Cook Library. Approximately 13 parking spaces along Southern Miss Drive will be blocked for the duration of the project.

There will be periods of loud noise during the early phases of the project. Depending on the weather, the project will be complete by December 2019. Please be observant of construction equipment in the area, and stay outside of the boundaries of the fence.

If you have questions, please contact Lorraine Stuart, Head of Special Collections and Curator of Historical Manuscripts and Archives, at or 601.266.4117.
