Michael Taylor
Assistant Curator of Books

I select rare books and other published materials to acquire for Special Collections in Hill Memorial Library, as well as books and databases in the field of History for the circulating collections in Middleton Library. In addition, I provide outreach and instruction to classes and the general public regarding Special Collections / History materials.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about how to conduct historical research in the LSU Libraries. I am happy to answer your questions by phone, email, or in person. Faculty may also contact me with requests for purchasing history materials or to schedule a course-integrated instruction session.
