Louisiana's doorway to the unique cultural and historical resources of Louisiana's libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural institutions. Tulane University is a participating institution in the Louisiana Digital Library, a program of the Louisiana Digital Consortium.
Established by Congress in 1966, the National Register of Historic Places is the nation's official list of significant historic properties. Each state has a historic preservation office, which is responsible for nominating buildings, sites, districts, etc. to the Register. In Louisiana, the Division of Historic Preservation administers this program and the site for the Louisiana National Register of Historic Places. On the Louisiana site a researcher will find an interactive map of current Louisiana historic places, informative videos, links to other sites of interest and more.
Part of the New Orleans Public Library, the Louisiana Division is a reference division which collects resources relating to the study of Louisiana and its citizens and to the city of New Orleans and New Orleanians.
The Louisiana Division also houses the City Archives, the official repository for the records of New Orleans municipal government (1769-present), and holds on deposit the pre-1927 records of the civil courts and the pre-1932 records of the criminal courts of Orleans Parish.
