Connect with the Dean of Libraries, Dr. Lis Pankl

Welcome to MSU Libraries!

I am proud to serve as dean of a dynamic and thriving academic library that aspires to Association of Research Libraries (ARL) status. Mississippi State University Libraries serve as a hub for research, resources, community building, learning, and study for students, faculty, staff, and community members. We make data driven decisions and enable a world of both print and digital resources that help you teach, deepen your research and create significant impact for our users and for the state.

Our talented faculty and staff provide expertise across a variety of areas, including information and data literacy, archives and special collections, research modalities and new forms of scholarly communication. We partner with the campus, local, and state communities to foster collaborations and connections that directly contribute to student and faculty success.

I welcome your ideas and suggestions about how MSU Libraries can better serve MSU and the State of Mississippi. Please do not hesitate to contact me at, or use the form below.
