LSU Libraries to Host an Open House

Posted in Announcements

On Wednesday, February 5, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., LSU Libraries will host an open house in Middleton Library.  At this event, students will be able to learn some new things about LSU Libraries’ resources and services and have fun while doing so.  Booths will be stationed throughout Middleton Library representing various aspects of the LSU Libraries, including Hill Memorial Library, the Cartographic Information Center, and the Veterinary Medicine Library, as well as having representatives from LOUIS (The Louisiana Library Network), the Center for Academic Success, Information Technology Services, and the Law Center Library.

The open house will feature games, activities, prizes, and food.  This is a Mardi Gras-themed event, and king cake and coffee will be available, provided by LSU Dining.  Participants will have the opportunity to win several door prizes, including a NOOK HD 7” Tablet (donated by EBSCO Information Services), a Raising Cane’s gift basket, and an iPod Shuffle.  There will even be live music performances in the Music Resources Center on Middleton’s 2nd floor.

So please come by and visit during the open house—you can have some king cake and coffee, participate in the activities to win a prize, and just pass a great time with us at LSU Libraries!

Paul Hrycaj is a Research & Instruction Librarian at the LSU Libraries.

  • #TBT In recognition of Black History Month, today’s Throwback Thursday image depicts the Harambé student group from 1972. Established in 1971, Harambé (a Swahili word meaning working together in unity) was one of the first African American student groups on campus. Their goals were to provide for communication among people on campus, bridge gaps between the greater Baton Rouge community and Southern University and African Americans at LSU, help black students and prospective black students develop a positive self-image, and develop a highly visible black presence on campus. The Black Student Union fulfills many of these objectives today. In 1972, the Harambé House was established at 3004 Highland Rd. to provide a space for various activities and for interaction between blacks and non-blacks. The African American Cultural Center, established in 1993, plays a similar role today.

    To learn more about student life at LSU, and about our collections at Hill Memorial Library, please visit our current exhibit, Special Collections on Parade, on display through May 30. LSU Libraries Special Collections presents a showcase of things rare, natural, historical, technological, literary, political, comical and otherwise of note amongst the eclectic collections housed within Hill Memorial Library. Selected rare books, photographs, historical documents, sheet music, art, and oral histories are on display from all major collections, spanning seven centuries. Faculty and staff members at Hill Memorial Library curated the exhibition.
