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.

    The oral history project to document Louisiana Cooperative Extension (LCES) continues! In his Abbeville office last week, Mark Shirley sat down with the Center's Graduate Assistant, Chelsea Arseneault, for an interview. Mark is an area agent for Aquaculture & Coastal Resources/Natural Resources in the Southwest Region for LCES. Mr. Shirley reflects on growing up in New Orleans, attending LSU, his career in Extension, and some of the physical, social, and political changes he has seen in the communities he serves. He discusses some of the issues that are most important to him: particularly marsh preservation, his work with the 4-H camp Marsh Maneuvers and of course, crawfish aquaculture. Mr. Shirley wraps up the interview discussing the resilience of the community in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The number one cattle parish before the hurricanes, Vermilion suffered a devastating loss of 40,000 cows drowned by the flood waters during the 2005 storm season. Mr. Shirley highlights how LCES is a valuable resource in times of crisis, being able to provide practical items people need to rebuild their lives. Photo by Kyle Tanglao.
