Louisiana History Manuscripts on Microfilm


The microforms collection at Howard-Tilton Memorial Library is a rich and diverse collection across a range of subjects. Our holdings in Louisiana History are particularly strong. Many of these manuscripts have never been digitized and some are unique to Tulane.

The following list is a selection of the Louisiana-subject manuscript microfilm titles currently housed in the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library. Some of these titles are for sets that include a large number of works, while others are individual titles from within larger sets.

Using the Collection

The manuscript microfilm section is sorted numerically by call number. If you need additional assistance, ask at the Media Services desk on the 6th floor. Please refer to the chart below for the manuscript microfilm's location. (Click through for a larger image)


Once you have located the correct film, our microfilm/microfiche scanners enable patrons to read and print microforms; edit the scanned images using advanced editing software; save documents as OCR-enabled .pdfs, tiffs, or .jpgs; scan documents to a flash drive; and send the files through email, Google Drive, or Dropbox.

Finishing Up

When you are done, please place used microfilm and microfiche in any of the bins labed "Microforms Returns" located on top of the microforms cabinets or on the service desk. 

**Please do not refile microfilm and microfiche yourself.**
