    A new mini exhibit, "A Brief History of European Bookbinding from the Middle Ages to 1900," will be on display in the Hill Memorial Library lecture hall on the LSU campus from May 9 through June 30. Representative bindings from five centuries are included, and visitors will have an opportunity to learn about the different materials and techniques used to decorate books in the era before mechanized binding. Among the items in the exhibit are a 16th-century book lined with a scrap of a medieval music manuscript, as well as several non-traditional bindings in ivory, velvet, and even Scottish tartan.

    The exhibition is free and is open to the public. The library is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, and Tuesday evenings (while classes are in session) until 8 p.m. For more information, contact Michael Taylor at (225)578-6547 or
