Here you will find a brief introduction to using archives and what makes up the archival collections at the LSU Law Library. You will also find step by step instructions on how to access the library's archives, the library's archives policies, and links to related resources.
Archival materials require an appointment to be viewed. The archives room is not open to browsing. Archival materials can not be checked out. Appointments must be made with the archivist a minimum of 24 hours in advance.
Appointments with the archivist are available between 9:00a.m. and 3:00p.m. Monday-Friday (excluding university holidays). The archives close at 4:30p.m. To make an appointment please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The library has a small office space on the first first floor available for those conducting archival research.
The LSU Law Center is located on Highland Road, across from the Parade Grounds on the LSU campus. We are bordered to the west by Highland Road, to the north by Dalrymple Drive, to the east by a one-way semi-circle driveway (accessible from Dalrymple Drive only) and farther east by East Campus Drive, and to the south by Raphael Semmes Road. The old section of the Law Center faces Highland Road. The new section faces East Campus Drive.
Exit I-10 (from either direction) at the Dalrymple Drive exit. Turn right onto Dalrymple Drive and proceed approximately 1/2 mile to the Law Center. The law library is on the first floor of the Law Center building and is most easily accessed from the rear of the Law Center (across the street from University High School).
Once inside the library, ask for the archivist at the circulation desk.
