Come Celebrate With Us!

On behalf of Dean Smith and the University Library, you are invited to attend an upcoming program, "Celebrating 60 Years of Documents."

The University Library is celebrating its 60th year as a proud member of the Louisiana State Documents Depository Program, and 45 years as a member of the Federal Depository Library Program. In commemoration of these two milestones, the Library is hosting an afternoon of activities on Thursday, September 25th. We would be honored to have you as our guest.

Events begin at 1:00 p.m. in the University Conference Center, on the 7th floor of the University Library building. The program will commence with two expert speakers: Ms. Charlene Cain, Head of Access Services, LSU Law Library, an expert on intellectual freedom, will share her expertise on “The Cornerstone of Democratic Values: the Librarian’s Role in Access to Government Information.” Next, Ms. Lori Smith, Government Documents Department Head, Sims Memorial Library, Southeastern Louisiana University, will showcase federal and Louisiana resources in “Government Sources 101: An Introduction to Online Government Publications and Web Sites.”

These excellent presenters will be followed by a reception at 4:00 p.m. — complete with dignitaries and, of course, a special cake — in Special Collections, on the 5th floor of the Library. There will be displays throughout the Library to be viewed at your leisure; Library tours will be available upon request.

For more information, please contact Dr. Karen Cook, Government Documents Librarian, at, or call the Government Documents Office, 318.342.1066.

We hope to see you at the Library!
