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.

  • #TBT The 1971 fall commencement ceremonies were the first to be held in the newly completed LSU Assembly Center, now the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Previous commencement ceremonies were held in the John M. Parker Coliseum, Tiger Stadium, the Gym-Armory, and the Greek Theater. 1099 degrees were awarded that year including 30 law degrees and 84 PhDs. Although called a “midyear” commencement, it was the first to be held right after the end of the fall semester. Previous midyear commencements were held in mid-January. Commencement programs from the very first in 1869 can be found at Hill Memorial Library. Congratulations, fall graduates!
