Analog and Digital Records Housed Locally

Records found in the Beulah Culbertson Archives and Special Collections should be cited using the following elements in this order:

  1. document title and date (if any),
  2. the box number (if applicable),
  3. the folder’s place in the box (if applicable),
  4. the collection title (if known),
  5. "Beulah Culbertson Archives and Special Collections, Fant Memorial Library, Mississippi University for Women, Columbus, MS."

When documents lack a discrete title, a brief description should be created for them. If the box, folder, and/or collection is unknown or not applicable, it can be omitted; most items in the rare book library, for instance, will lack all three of these elements.
