How to Preview Materials

Standard Patron Policy

A preview period is built into your ordering process. You should receive materials a minimum of three days before your show date. If you need more than three days either request the item for a few days before you will show it through your show date (April 4-8 for example); or submit a request for the item for a date earlier in the semester and for your intended show date (Show date April 8th: Preview Request February 2nd). Summer is also a wonderful time to preview materials for the next school year.

Tulane/Loyola Patron Policy

Because of our convenient location on Tulane’s campus, Tulane/Loyola borrowers are allowed to preview 10 extra items per semester (up to three at a time) on the weekends in addition to the 10 items regularly allowed. Such requests will be available for pick up on Fridays after 12:00pm and must be returned the following Monday before 2:00pm. As always, this procedure is subject to availability and requires at least seven days advance notice to allow for processing. Please be sure to write preview next to these requests to ensure that they are not counted towards your regular 10 item limit.

Latin American Graduate Oraganization (LAGO) 2018 Conference: Call for Proposals

View Full Event Description

The Latin American Graduate Organization will be hosting its 2018 Latin American Studies Conference titled Thinking of the Future: Expanding the possible in the Americas (Pensando en el porvenir: Expandiendo lo posible en las Américas) February 23 – 25, 2018, at Tulane University, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This year, the conference topic is meant to challenge academics and activists to move beyond critiques and recommendations of how to address modern days issues, and instead articulate a vision of and for the future.

The LAGO Conference welcomes all disciplines and all approaches, as long as the project attempts to grapple with the idea of building something better. This is a Latin American Studies Conference, but creative writers, journalists, artists, performers, organizers, lawyers and healthcare providers as well as graduate students and other academics are welcome. Proposals are accepted in Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Creole, and English.

Deadlines: Abstracts of papers and projects are due November 25, 2017. Abstracts of papers or project descriptions must not exceed 300 words.

Please contact lago.tulane@gmail.com with questions. For more information, visit the official conference website.
