Bibliographic instruction is an important tool to teach students about services and collections offered in a library. At the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Mississippi, curators often use instruction sessions to teach students about the civil rights history of the state. Through correspondence, photographs, government documents, and music, students become aware of the activities of civil rights activists and the segregationists they fought against. This paper explores the various civil rights primary sources and subjects covered in instruction sessions at the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Mississippi.
