Welcome to the LSU Ethnographic Collection. The database you are about to examine is the culmination of more than 60 years of field work by countless collectors. All of this information is available to you free of charge. All we ask of you is that you provide your name, organization, and e-mail address so that we can keep track of who is visiting our collection database. This information is important to us because use-rate of our collections is the best way to prove the value of systematic collections to science. Please help us by providing this information. Also, if you have any comments about the database, please send these to the Curator of Anthropology/Ethnography, Dr. Rebecca Saunders.
