Two years ago, the University of Mississippi Department of Archives and Special Collections hired an archivist charged with moving the department's finding-aids onto the Internet. At that time, the information about our collections on the Internet was less comprehensive than the print information in the reading room. Available on the departmental web-site there were a few finding-aids that indexed important collections, subject-based lists of our holdings (designed to allow our patrons to discover brief summaries of many of our most important collections), and general departmental information. Additionally, there were several online exhibits.
