The Mitchell Memorial Library has a collection of the elementary and secondary textbooks currently adopted for use in Mississippi's public schools. These textbooks are located on the 4th floor of the Mitchell Memorial Library. Due to the nature of the collection, the materials may only be checked out by current MSU faculty, staff, or students. Checkouts are for 14 days and may be renewed once. The collection has been divided according to subject areas and is identified in the Library's online catalog through a keyword search for "State Adopted Textbook."
