Posted in Announcements, Events

Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI) is a national organization that promotes interaction among those who share a commitment to music. The LSU Chapter, Sigma Phi, will hold its annual used music, book and recording sale in the School of Music Lobby on April 18-19, from 9 am-3 pm. Entitled, “Music Sale to Benefit YOUR Music Library,” the sale will be organized and staffed by active members of the LSU chapter, and sales will benefit LSU’s music library.

Local chapter chair Molly Brackins comments, “Through this sale we are hoping to not only clear up some space in the library and faculty offices, but to be able to present the music library with a nice financial contribution to better the resources available to all LSU students. We are also hoping that one man’s trash can become one man’s treasure while supporting a great cause.”

Interim Assistant Dean of the LSU Libraries and Head of Music Resources Lois Kuyper-Rushing enthusiastically supports the sale. “The SAI sale is a wonderful way for music materials to find new homes and for music students and faculty to obtain materials at a very low cost. As state funds have diminished, the profits from this sale have, over the years, provided new books and scores, new study tables and other needed amenities for music library users.”

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to shop at the SAI Sale. We hope to see you on April 18-19!

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

    Please join us in welcoming Chelsea Arseneault to the Center! Chelsea is the new graduate assistant who will be continuing the work started last year by Wyatt Winnie for the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service Oral History Project.This assistantship is funded by the LSU AgCenter and LSU College of Agriculture and is part of the two-year collaborative effort with LSU Libraries to document LCES. Chelsea was raised in Louisiana and holds two degrees from LSU: a B.A. in Anthropology and an M.A. in Teaching, and is now enrolled in the LSU MLIS program. Chelsea could not be more excited to get back into the field and close to her anthropological roots. Already, as part of her initial research and training, Chelsea has helped select audio clips for the Smith-Lever Exhibit listening station, which will open later this month. And this past week, Chelsea (at right) accompanied Center staff to observe a student training workshop at McKinley High School here in Baton Rouge (more on that next week!)-- photo by Kyle Tanglao.

    #TBT This photograph from c. 1890 shows a civil engineering class. On the back wall of the classroom hangs a portrait of William Tecumseh Sherman, LSU's first president and professor of engineering. Civil engineering has a special place in LSU's history with the first engineering degree at LSU being awarded to a civil engineering graduate in 1869. Also, in 1969, the first African American to graduate from the College of Engineering received his bachelor's in civil engineering. During 1908, the university was reorganized into individual colleges. At that time, the College of Engineering was established with civil engineering being one of four departments within the new college. Expanding the department's offerings to include graduate studies, the master's degree program in civil engineering was initiated in 1932 and the doctoral degree program in 1970.
