They were provided courtesy of the Noel Collection at Louisiana State University at Shreveport, which last year was ceremoniously designated the official repository of SCSECS knowledge and learning. To read more about the Noel Collection (which now offers fellowships to scholars interested in carrying out research there), click here. Or search our on-line program for the sessions that will deal with past and future work at the Collection.

We are in the process of developing an on-line image bank of 18th- and 19th-century images that you may use free of charge (with a credit line and a link back to the image bank site if you are posting on line) for your course syllabi, handouts, and web pages. Special requests are welcomed.
