News item published on: 2017-10-01 10:34:00

Special Collections at Southern Miss is accepting applications to serve as a student curator for the 2018 spring semester. Student curators will work with a librarian to create a one-case exhibit featuring materials from Special Collections.

Students will learn how to select items for display, install the materials, write labels and exhibit text, and publicize the exhibit. Student curators are required to select topics and materials for their exhibits from the materials found in Special Collections at The University of Southern Mississippi.

A list of select topics may be found, listed by major, here. We encourage topics outside of this list as well. This opportunity is available to all undergraduate and graduate students at Southern Miss. Three students will be selected to serve as student curators for spring 2018.
