LSU Exhibition: The Story of Louisiana's Relationship With Water

September 01, 2022

An LSU Libraries exhibition, “Water, Water Everywhere: Control and Consequence in Louisiana’s Coastal Wetlands,” on display in Hill Memorial Library from Sept. 6 – Dec. 21, 2022, tells the story of Louisiana’s relationship with water, as revealed in photographs, family papers, business records and a variety of publications that document the infinitely meandering waterways, human attempts to control them and the adversarial attitude toward the marsh embraced in the not-too distant past. 

“Coastal research is an important pillar of LSU President Tate’s ‘Scholarship First’ agenda of priorities, and rightly so. Coastal land loss is one of the most serious environmental issues facing our state,” said Gina Costello, LSU Libraries’ associate dean of technology and special collections.
