The de Grummond Children's Literature Collection is part of Special Collections at the University of Southern Mississippi Libraries. The office and research facilities are housed in the McCain Library and Archives, with the exhibition and gallery space in Joseph Anderson Cook Library, both of which are located on the University's Hattiesburg campus. Our staff includes Ellen H. Ruffin, Curator, Amanda Myers, Collection Specialist, Danielle L. Bishop, Assistant Curator, and Claire Thompson, Collection Assistant. We always have student library assistants, and from time to time we have Library Science practicum students working in the Collection.
