LSUS Student News Reports!

The April 8th, 2011 edition of LSU Shreveport Student News includes a story on LOUIS:

LSUS has done other pro-LOUIS actions as well.

LOUIS Denied Grant

Donald Smith, Dean of the University of Louisiana at Monroe Library and Chair of the LALINC Executive Committee made this statement via email today:

We received word yesterday that the Board’s grant consultants determined that the “Save LOUIS” grant application was ineligible. Unless the legislature can be persuaded to fully fund LOUIS, all we will get by way of the Board’s request is $500,000. Each institution will have to come up with the rest. Our [ULM's] share will could be in excess of $175,000 rather than the $65,000 we had paid prior to our funding loss. Please solicit everyone you know, particularly at the University, to contact our legislators for support.

This means that there is no grant money coming to save LOUIS, and institutions will need to pay much more for access to resources. We need your help!

Do you "like" our facebook.com/savelouis page already? If so, don't forget to tell your friends.


But remember-- following us on Facebook doesn't change anything in itself-- we need people to send letters and emails to reinstate funding for LOUIS!


Also, Sorry about the long "SAVE LOUIS LSU LIBRARIES ELECTRONIC DATABASE" name-- Facebook will not let is change it. If any of you know how to change it, please post instructions on the wall!

Letter: Legislature should defend LOUIS

LSUS Librarian Carla Clark has written an opinion piece which has been published by The Advocate. You can read it here: http://www.2theadvocate.com/opinion/Letter-Legislature-should-defend-LOUIS.html

LOUIS was established precisely because many of our libraries could not afford to purchase the physical and virtual resources that this collaborative effort provides.
