Afternoon in the Archives: Dante and Chaucer

Posted in Announcements, Special Collections Tagged with: ,

Join the LSU Libraries’ Special Collections on December 1 and 2 for our first “Afternoon in the Archives,” an informal series of showcases designed to help you learn more about our exciting collections.  The theme of the first event will be Dante and Chaucer – the greatest vernacular poets of the Middle Ages.  A broad selection of materials will be on display, ranging from manuscript facsimiles and early printed books to artists’ renditions of the Divine Comedy and Canterbury Tales.

Stop by for a few minutes or stay for an hour!  Library staff will be happy to talk with you about our collections and how we can be part of your teaching, learning, and research. Busy schedule?  There will be two showings:  December 1 (2:00 to 3:00) and December 2 (12:00 to 1:00).

We hope to see you there!  For more information, contact Michael Taylor at or 578-6547.

(For a list of materials shown, please contact the library.)


Michael Taylor is Curator of Books, LSU Libraries' Special Collections
