About CHARM

Mission

CHARM's mission is to promote understanding and appreciation of the role played by agriculture, forestry, and rural life in Mississippi's past by collecting, preserving, and providing access to important historical materials as a foundation for teaching, learning, and research, with special attention to the leadership of Mississippi State University, a land-grant institution.

The Consortium carries out its mission by:

  • Identifying, collecting, and cataloging published and primary information sources
  • Creating and implementing an ongoing oral history program
  • Providing access to collected historical resources in physical and electronic form via the library and the Internet
  • Promoting scholarly endeavors based upon the collection
  • Developing educational outreach programs
  • Fostering ongoing collaboration among those who share an interest in the history of agriculture, forestry, and rural life in Mississippi.
