The Special Collections library is this morning's lead story in New Wave, Tulane University's daily online newspaper. If you're not subscribed to the New Wave email list, you can find the story here.
The article is about the Louisiana Collection's art ephemera. We're especially promoting our art ephemera now because of its strength (we preserve extensive ephemera about New Orleans artists and art galleries going back more than a hundred years); the unusual, perhaps unique, depth of its indexing; the fact that its index is available online; and the fact that an updated and extended index will be available in one or two months.
For more information about our art ephemera collection, you're welcome to visit our art ephemera LibGuide page.
Our art ephemera complements and extends our extensive archival holding pertaining to area art and artists. Those holdings are described on our Art Archives LibGuide.
Despite its depth, our art ephemera is only a small fraction of our (dare I say it?) "vast" vertical files collection. For more information about our vertical files in general, please visit our web page.
And of course if you would like to see any of this material for yourself, you're welcome to drop by. We'd be delighted to show it to you.
