- From February 20 to April 25, LSU Libraries’ Special Collections hosted an exhibit curated by Michael
Taylor. It was hosted in conjunction with One Book One Community and based on the 2008 winter/spring book
selection, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Entitled “In Truth’s Bold Cause: Louisiana and the Freedom of the
Press," the exhibit helped visitors place the history of censorship in Louisiana into its larger, global context.
Items dating back as far as the 17th century were included, and the exhibit was rounded out with materials related
to Huey Long’s attempts to gag the Louisiana press--including the LSU student newspaper--in the 1930s, one of
which resulted in a landmark Supreme Court case.
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
