Former Democratic National Convention chair and LSU alumna Donna Brazile gifted her alma mater's library with a piece of history Friday - her papers. 

"LSU will receive all of my papers," Brazile said. "Everything." 

The gift will include all assessments the DNC received for the 2016 election. 

Brazile was at the university's Hill Memorial Library Friday afternoon to discuss her new book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that put Donald Trump in the White House, and sign copies of it when she made the announcement.

The book has been a source of controversy since Brazile started her press tour for it, with critics accusing her of providing fresh fodder to Republicans demanding a criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton.

Brazile previously gave a collection of her papers to LSU in 2014, documenting various aspects of her career to that point including her work in every presidential campaign between 1976 and 2000.

Brazile graduated from LSU in 1981 and the university awarded her an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters in 2005.
