STRIPES at LSU Libraries

STRIPES at LSU Libraries

On July 31, representatives of Hill Memorial Library and Middleton Library made presentations to 255 enrollees of the STRIPES (Student Tigers Rallying, Interacting, & Promoting Education & Service) program. At Middleton Library, the students were introduced to services such as laptops for checkout at the circulation desk, study and presentation rooms, print services, the tutorial center, and CC’s Coffee Shop. Students at Hill Memorial Library learned about what is “special” about Special Collections and how primary source materials from Hill’s vast holdings can help further their research and learning. Students were also able to see (with the help of a magnifying glass!) LSU Libraries’ smallest book, one of the Libraries’ oldest books (printed in 1483), and a cuneiform clay tablet, one of the earliest examples of writing (which dates from about 2500 B.C.).

Hill Memorial Library and Middleton Library will host more STRIPES participants on August 7 and 14.

More information on this program can be found at http://stripes.lsu.edu/.

  • #TBT As the Tigers roar into the opening game of the 2014 football season, let’s look back at the season opener from one hundred years ago. LSU faced Southwestern Louisiana Industrial Institute (now University of Louisiana at Lafayette) on September 26, a game Coach E.T. McDonald (standing at left in the photograph) called “merely a practice game” against a much smaller team with less ability. LSU cruised to an easy 54-0 victory.
