The curator is steadily adding materials to the collection. These materials are primarily selected with the research interests of LSU-Shreveport faculty and students in mind. Currently, the curator is also specifically seeking out acquisitions in the area of panoramas and other physically-extended, three-dimensional or simulated three-dimensional printed artifacts.
Below is a list of our most recent acquisitions.
