About the LeDoux Library

Louisiana State University at Eunice offers adequate and appropriate library and learning resources and services to support its mission. The LeDoux Library is a 37,700 square foot, two story building that houses a print collection, a classroom with computers, study rooms, and a Learning Commons that features desktop computers, laptops, printers, scanners, and interactive smart boards. The Gear2Geaux program allows students to check-out electronic items including laptops, mobile hotspots, microphones, web cams, and graphing calculators. 

The library is open Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (4:30 p.m. during the summer), on Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and as requested to accommodate student or community needs. Like most academic libraries, LSU Eunice has shifted its financial resources to licensing digital databases so that all library patrons, on or off the Eunice campus, can access the collection. This is accomplished via EZproxy, a proxy server that authenticates users and delivers e-content to them 24/7. In addition to online access, LSU Eunice students attending classes at the LSU Alexandria site have access to the Bolton Library.  

The mission of the LeDoux Library is to provide informational resources to students and faculty while recognizing the varying levels of information literacy and the various information access methods of students from different locations. An overriding goal and theme is to teach information literacy skills and to encourage self-sufficiency in locating, critically evaluating, and utilizing the library's materials to become life-long learners.

Library Collection

LSU Eunice’s digital collections and resources are provided through membership in LOUIS: The Louisiana Library Network, a consortium that consists of membership by all public institutions of higher education in Louisiana. LOUIS libraries participate in cooperative procurement and, in return, receive professional development, reciprocal borrowing, library support services, and an extensive core digital collection that provides added collection depth and research functionality. 


To support the institution’s curriculum and mission, the library provides a variety of services to students, faculty, and staff. The library staff is available to answer reference questions, provide one-on-one research assistance, and offer basic computer support. Distance and off-campus learners may receive library reference services via phone, email, video conferencing, or online via LibChat.
