STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State University has placed its archive of 5,000 photographs online.
The university says it has some information about all the pictures, but sometimes lacks dates. Librarians are asking alumni and friends to provide dates for the collection, which is available for online viewing at library.msstate.edu/msuphotos, by posting information in online comments.
Digital projects coordinator Randall McMillen says MSU wanted to share images of its 137-year history.
Images posted online have relatively low resolution. McMillen says people who want to buy sharper copies of the pictures can contact the university.
