Using The LSU Law Library Archives

An introduction to the unique holdings and policies of the LSU Law Library Archival Collections and a beginner's guide to archival research.

Planning Your Trip

After booking your appointment with the archivist, we recommend you prepare for your visit by reviewing this checklist:

  • Familiarize yourself with the Law Center's location and LSU's parking rules.
  • Know the rules for using Archival Collections
  • Plan your research time efficiently to get the most out of your visit with the archivist.
  • Pack a USB flash drive in case you need to scan certain materials.
  • Remember that only LSU students and staff have wireless internet access. Public Patrons do have internet access through the computers in the reading room.
  • Schedule some additional time for the unexpected. Discoveries and new questions unearthed during research may lead you down different avenues than you had originally anticipated.
