Each year, all of the presentations given at the Music Library Association Chapter meetings are evaluated and two are chosen to be presented at the national meeting. Dr. Kuyper-Rushing will present “Eugène Bozza and the Creation of a Thematic Index” at the 2013 National Music Library Association Conference on March 1, 2013 in San Jose, CA.

Lois is the Head of the LSU Libraries Carter Music Resources. She spent her Spring 2011 sabbatical researching French composer  Eugène Bozza’s (1905 – 1991) work, traveling to France to the library holding his manuscripts. Her book, a thematic catalog of the works of Eugène Bozza, will be co-published in the near future by A-R Editions and the Music Library Association.

Congratulations, Lois!

Sigrid Kelsey is the Director of Library Communications and Publications at the LSU Libraries.

    Dr. Helen Regis and the Center's director, Jennifer Cramer, are co-teaching "Doing Oral History" Anth 4909 this Spring 2015. The class explores theory and methods of oral history and life history research, with special emphasis on its importance for the study of social movements, cultural and social history, race/racism, folklore, and feminist theory and ethnography. Doing Oral History is open to advanced undergraduates as well as graduate students who wish to learn the theory and practice of oral history. This class is a research-based service-learning class offered in partnership with the Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
  • #TBT Our campus, c. 1939. How many buildings can you name? Hint: Many of these structures were named for legendary faculty members and administrators whose work is featured on our current agricultural history exhibition, "Cooperative Extension at LSU: Commemorating the Centennial of the Smith-Lever Act of 1914." Many of the same people are featured in our companion exhibit, "The Greater University," documenting LSU's move to its current location. .
