Louisiana Research Collection
Subject Resource Guide
Published Works: The Louisiana Research Collection collects comprehensively general, popular, and scholarly works in almost all subject areas concerning Louisiana. However, it does not actively acquire the full range of available publications regarding agriculture because Tulane University lacks programs in this field. Exceptions are agribusiness, forestry, and enterprises possessing state-wide cultural significance such as cotton, rice, and sugar; or, when publications directly pertain to and strengthen current holdings.Special attention is given to retrospective collecting of publications to assure completeness of the collection. Louisiana publications from World War II – 2000, and fiction and poetry from all time periods by Louisiana authors, are special focuses of retrospective collecting. We also participate in the Louisiana State Documents Depository Program, serving as a selective repository for Louisiana state documents.
