USGS Partners with University of Louisiana Library for Wetlands Exhibit: The USGS National Wetlands Research Center (NWRC) in Lafayette, Louisiana prepared a wetlands exhibit featuring materials from the NWRC library for display in the University of Louisiana’s (UL) Dupre Library. In addition to wetland science, the exhibit highlights information on ecotourism, recreation, careers, art and educational materials available for educators and students. Exhibits also include mapmaking tools and maps showing historic and current coastal wetland loss in Louisiana. USGS librarian Linda Broussard coordinated the exhibit with help from USGS geographer Chris Wells, USGS contractors Cassie Thibodeaux, Heidi Hitter, Susan Horton, Kelly Mouton, and Judith Haydel, and UL student intern John Breaux. The exhibit will run through August 31. (Susan Horton, Lafayette, LA, 337-266-8655)
