Noel Collection

The James Smith Noel Collection is a private collection of more than 200,000 volumes that are on permanent loan to LSUS.  While available to the public, the materials must remain in the collection area on the third floor, because it is a closed-stack, non-circulating collection. Uncataloged materials are organized in 128 broad subject areas. Cataloged materials are organized using the Library of Congress Classification System.

Search the Noel Memorial Library's online catalog for materials housed in the Noel Collection.  Keep in mind that materials are being added to the catalog on a daily basis.

Visit the James Smith Noel Collection Web Site, for more information.
