ABOUT THE COLLECTIONS

The collections mentioned below were all initiated in 1986 by Library Director, Anita Walton Moore.

RUST COLLEGE ARCHIVES

The Rust College Archives is the youngest department in the library. The library was not built to house archives, therefore archival materials were not kept in the library until recent years. In anticipation of building an annex that will support archives, we are now in the process of securing all vital archival materials pertaining to Rust College and the Marshall County area. College records, pictures, programs, brochures, presidential papers, etc; are filed and stored in acid-free containers for future use. Lucrative gifts (prints, paintings, artifacts, etc.) are also part of the Archives Collection.

INTERNATIONAL ROOM

The International Collection is a museum of artifacts and printed materials on eleven (11) countries traveled by Rust College faculty and staff. The collection began with artifacts from West Africa donated by Dr. Josephine Njoku, Mrs. Mildred McMillan, and Dr. Sylvester Oliver. These three faculty members were recipients of a Phelps Stokes Foundation Grant to travel in West Africa. Other countries represented are: Denmark, Norway, Pakistan, India, China, Mexico, Egypt, Israel, Tibet and the United States. The artifact contributors from these countries include: Mrs. Anita W. Moore (Library Director), Dr. Gemma Beckley, Dr. A. J. Stovall, Dr. Adebayo Moyo, Dr. Paul Lampley and Mr. Sana Sise.

International Room items

This room contains locked show cases of classified artifacts arranged in a museum-type setting and visited by many local public schools and community patrons. The different countries predict a way-of-life culture. Many Rust College students come from these countries.
