The LSU Libraries Special Collections division began digitization efforts in 1991. Efforts are both project-driven and programmatic. Special Collections seeks to serve the research and teaching needs of faculty, the research and learning needs of students, and the research needs of the larger user community, which ranges from genealogists and novelists through historians, economists, and environmentalists. Internationally, historians of the American South and the international Francophone community are major constituencies. Read more...
