Library Privileges

The Millsaps-Wilson Library is maintained by and for constituents of the College. In order to use the resources of the library, one must carry a valid Millsaps I.D. card or a special Library Borrowing Card. Current students, faculty and staff are the primary users, and special provisions are made for Alumni, Methodist ministers of the Mississippi Conference, and emeriti faculty. Courtesy Cards are available to individuals over 18 years of age at a cost of $100 per year. The library also honors InfoPass referrals from other local libraries, and scholars from distant institutions may use the library for limited periods if they bring a letter of referral from their academic librarian on letterhead stationary.
Users of the Methodist and College Archives need only register upon entering: Appointments are recommended due to the mornings-only schedule of the Archives.
The library serves the general public through Interlibrary Lending arrangements with public and academic libraries.
Questions or comments regarding access policy should be addressed to the College Librarian, Tom Henderson.
