FRIENDS OF UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES
The University of Southern Mississippi
The Friends of University Libraries is an organization providing support for the research, teaching and public service missions of The University of Southern Mississippi Libraries. In addition to supporting the services, facilities and activities of the Libraries, the Friends encourage financial contributions in the form of gifts, endowments and bequests as well as solicit donations of materials for the Libraries' collections.
The Friends also support the Libraries and encourage community involvement through the sponsorship of educational and cultural events such as visits with authors, exhibits and book signings. Members receive invitations to these events as well as copies of all University Libraries publications such as Library Focus, University Libraries' bi-annual newsletter, and Library News, a monthly e-newsletter.
Members also have access to the resources of the University Libraries in accord with library policy and may check out circulating materials. Membership is renewable on an annual basis.
