Enrique Alferez, the sculptor who designed the “Conquest of Yellow Fever” frieze in the library commons, will be the subject of a documentary at the 2010 New Orleans Po-Boy Preservation Festival.
“Enrique Alferez, Sculptor” (1989) will be shown at 6pm on Sunday, November 14 at 8325 Oak Street (the former Armstrong-McCall Beauty Supply store, located next to Frenchy’s Gallery and across from Maple Leaf Bar and Jaques-Imo’s Café).
A University of New Orleans production, the half-hour video profiles Alferez and his career predominantly in his own words, combining interviews with footage of the sculptor’s pervasive public art in New Orleans.
Along with the documentary – which hasn’t had such a screening in decades – filmmaker Matt Martinez and the artist’s daughter Dr. Tlaloc Alferez will provide additional information on Alferez and his work.

LSUHSC Facilities is planning to do some drain cleaning in the Library Commons food service area this evening (Thursday, Nov 4th) at about 6:00 pm. As a result, there could be a bad smell in the general area, although they will have deodorizers to dissipate any resulting smells. Thanks for your patience!
Wired Ports on the downtown campus will be switched over to using the 802.1x protocol at 9 am on Monday, October 25th. This is the same protocol that has been in use on the wireless network for sometime.
The email from the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Information Technology (on October 21st at 10:40 am to all LSUHSC New Orleans faculty, staff, and students) states “If you do experience a problem with a wired connection, please make an appointment with your school’s IT supporters to have the problem addressed. In the interim, please use your wireless connection.”
Starting at 5 am on Saturday, October 9th, there will be a partial electrical shutdown at the Resource Center Building. Receptacles and lighting on the Gravier Street side of the Resource Center Building will not be operational during this outage. The work will last approximately 8 hours.
The Library and Library Commons will remain open despite the outage.
The Isché Library (and Library Commons) will be closed during normal library hours on Saturday, September 25th. The mitigation contractor will be shutting down power to the Resource Center Building. Most other buildings on campus will also be affected by this outage.
To allow students time to use the Isché Library, special hours for the weekend will be as follows:
Saturday, September 25th 6 – 10 pm
Sunday, September 26th 10 am – 10 pm
The Wireless Network in the Isché Library and the Library Commons will upgraded tonight (Tuesday, September 21st) at 10 pm. The network will be unvailable for approximately 30-45 minutes.
*Update – 2:15 pm*
The Wired Ports in the Library have reverted to allow “guest” laptops to work.
Computer Services pushed through a change to all wired (requiring a cord) ports on the downtown campus yesterday, including the ones in the Library and the Library Commons. The ports will now required that any laptop connecting will need to be included in the network. (How to tell if your laptop is “in the network?” Do you use your LSUHSC userid and password to login? Then yes. If not? Then no.) Users who have “guest” computers will notice a message in the tray of their taskbar saying their Local Area Network has Limited Connectivity.
Wireless access is still available for non-network laptops.
The SAS software will not be renewed on the Library Commons PCs. Usage did not warrant its renewal.
The Isché Library will be closed on Saturday, August 28th. The mitigation contractor will be shutting down power to the entire Resource Center Building. The Library Commons will be closed as well until the late afternoon or early evening, whenever work is complete.
The Library will re-open at 1:30 pm on Sunday, August 29th.
The Isché Library will be closed on Saturday, August 7th. The New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board will be working in the area and the Resource Center Building will have no running water. The Library Commons will be closed as well until the late afternoon or early evening, whenever work is complete.
The Library will re-open at 1:30 pm on Sunday, August 8th.
Since the water will be shut down in the Resource Center Building from 7 p.m. on Friday, April 23rd until 5 a.m. on Saturday, April 24th, the Library Commons will be closed during that time period as bathrooms will not be working.
The Library Commons (24 hour study space) will be closed on Monday, March 22nd & Tuesday, March 23rd from midnight until 6 am. Outside contractors will be conducting core drilling on all floors of the Resource Center Building during this time.
The Library Commons will be closed from midnight to 8 a.m. on Saturday, February 27th to accomodate electrical work in the building. Please plan your studying accordingly.
The television sets in the Library Commons are available for use with a laptop. Just stop by the Circulation Desk to checkout the cables that are needed to make it work. Use of the TVs & the cables is on a “first come – first served” basis. Enjoy!
