LWVOXNMS Member, Laura Harper, Leaves Impressive Legacy at University

July 5, 2017

Librarian Laura Harper has left a lasting gift and legacy at the University of Mississippi Library. 

 

"Veteran University of Mississippi librarian Laura Harper may have left campus, but her legacy remains in the form of a treasure trove of information older than the Titanic and far below the surface of Google.Harper recently retired after 45 years at the J.D. Williams Library, but she continues to have such a strong desire for students to be able to access government information that she personally paid for subscriptions to databases that contain such documents as the unpublished transcripts of congressional hearings dating back to 1824, congressional research from 1830 forward and interactive, digital maps of Mississippi as early as 1867 through 1970."

 

Thank you so much, Laura! We are so proud to have you as an LWVOXNMS member.
