About Edith Garland Dupré Library

Edith Garland Dupré Library is centrally situated on the main campus of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette at 400 E. St. Mary Blvd. The library is open to students, faculty, staff, and the public.  Dupré Library recently added its one millionth bound volume (The Nature of Things at Lake Martin: exploring the Wonder of Cypress Island Preserve in Southern Louisiana by Nancy Camel). 

Special collections include:  U.S. government documents, Louisiana government documents, materials pertaining to the history and culture of Acadiana (in the Jefferson Caffery Louisiana Room), the University Archives and Acadiana Manuscripts Collection and the Rare Book Collection. Funds from a BORSF grant received in 2003 have been used to establish the Cajun and Creole Music Collection, a collection of commercial recordings of Cajun, Creole, zydeco and swamp pop music. The CCMC shares a space on the third floor with the Ernest J. Gaines Center, an international center of scholarship on the author Ernest J. Gaines and his works.

Most of the library's collections are available online through the library's catalog. Patrons may access the catalog over the Internet from home, office, or campus. Educational materials housed in the Instructional Materials Center may be searched separately or in conjunction with a search of Dupré Library's holdings.

The librarians at Edith Garland Dupré Library are eager to help prepare students by providing them with the resources they need for their education.
