LSU Digital Library

Lousiana State University's Digital Library, in partnership with the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the Louisiana State Museum, makes two image databases available: The Preservation of Louisiana's Treasures Program, about 200 images of Southern fine art, primarily 20th-century paintings and photographs from the Roger Houston Ogden collection; and the Rowles Stereograph Collection, 386 stereographs, "vintage albumen prints of New Orleans and Louisiana . . . from mid 1860s to the early 20th century." There are some surprisingly modern images in the stereograph collection, such as a 1978 Karem Abdul Jabbar slam dunk, and a 1930 stereograph portrait of Huey Long. The search interface for both databases is the same, allowing keyword searches or browsing by titles, creators, or subjects. In the browse mode, images are presented as pages of five thumbnails. This simple arrangement is missing some navigational tools; when browsing, there is no way to get back to the beginning without hitting the back button repeatedly; after search results are displayed, it is difficult to do a new search without going all the way back to the LSU Digital Library homepage.
