Happy Mardi Gras!
The Schiro Reading Room will be closed from February 6 through February 9, in observance of the Mardi Gras holidays. Have a safe and happy early Mardi Gras.
To access original Carnival memorabilia located throughout LaRC's archival collections, do an advanced catalog search, combining the subject keyword, Carnival Louisiana New Orleans (all of these), with Type: archival material. Here is the result of that search, which yields 53 cataloged collections.
