Location and Contact Information
The James Smith Noel Collection
The James Smith Noel Collection is located on the third floor of the Noel Memorial Library on the campus of Louisiana State University in Shreveport. Should you choose to fly to Shreveport (airport identifier SHV), a representative from the Collection will make every effort to meet your plane and provide ground transportation for you. Should you drive to Shreveport (from either the north or the south), take I-49 to the Bert Kouns Industrial Loop exit. There will also be a small sign which indicates that this is the exit for LSUS. Drive east until you reach Highway 1 (also called Youree Drive); make a right turn and on the left, two blocks later, you will see the campus. The library is the first building on the left.
If you are driving from the east or west, you will probably approach Shreveport on I-20. Stay on the interstate until you reach the exit for I-49 South (to Alexandria); follow the directions above to get to campus.
