Library Research Guides

 

The Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum and Dupré Library at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette have partnered to create research guides to accompany Hilliard Museum exhibitions. These guides serve as a starting point for conducting research about the artist, works of art, and context of items in the exhibition.
