Good Afternoon Everyone,

   Nancy and I, on behalf of Xavier University of Louisiana Library, would like to invite you all to the next meeting of the Louisiana/Southern Mississippi Chapter of the Special Libraries Association (SLA). The Meeting will take place Wednesday, July 12th at 11:00AM here at the Xavier University Library Archives and Special Collections.

    Myself and Members of the Library Archives will be giving a presentation on the Special Collections housed in the Archives at XULA, including the Charles F. Heartman Manuscripts of Slavery, while also speaking on some of the future digital projects in store for our historical collections. Following this presentation, will be the usual SLA Meeting and discussion among all attendees.  

    All are welcome – you don’t need to be a member to attend. We look forward to socializing and networking with colleagues from different types of libraries, so please feel free to pass along this notice to any interested colleagues at other libraries.

     After the meeting, those who wish to do so will go to lunch at Five Happiness Chinese Restaurant located a few blocks from the University.  Each person will be responsible for his/her own meal expenses.

   The XULA Library Archives and Special Collections is located on the 3rd Floor, Room 319, of the Library Resource Center. A Campus Map has been attached for your convenience. Xavier University is located at 1 Drexel Dr, New Orleans, LA 70125.
