University of Mississippi: Mold Discovered Inside Archives and Special Collections Dept. of J.D. Williams Library
William Faulkner’s original manuscript materials, B.B. King’s personal listening collection and papers from notable Mississippi authors are just a few items among the Archives and Special Collections at J.D. Williams Library that have been recently threatened by the discovery of mold.
Since August 18, 2015, the exhibit has been closed.
Jennifer Ford, head of Archives and Special Collections and associate professor, said the exhibit is temporarily closed to allow the remediation process to take place.
Following the cleaning process, J.D. Williams plans to reopen the exhibit.
“We do not yet have a definite re-opening date but it will likely be several weeks before this occurs,” Ford said.
