Posted in Announcements

On Monday, August 12th, Emily Frank, Instructional Technologies and Engineering Librarian, and Mitch Fontenot, Outreach Librarian, met and presented to 210 LSU Resident Assistants in Broussard Hall through the RA Resource Fair.  Under the theme “The Amazing Race,” this information fair made Resident Assistants aware of the many services available to them and their residents throughout the school year. Representatives from other campus entities, such as Career Services, the University Recreation Center, First Year Experience, and Student Health Center, were available to talk to the Resident Assistants and distribute information.  On behalf of LSU Libraries, Mitch and Emily met RAs, promoted the upcoming Meet Your Librarian Day on September 4, and provided information about LIS 1001, electronic resources, and Special Collections.

Paul Hrycaj is a Research & Instruction Librarian 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.
