Louisiana Newspapers

Most Louisiana newspapers are housed in the Louisiana Room and are available on microfilm. The exceptions are the Advocate (Baton Rouge) and the Times-Picayune (New Orleans), which are housed in the Microforms Department on the 1st Floor. Current issues of the Daily Advertiser (Lafayette) in paper form are available at the Reference Desk.

Holdings of all titles can be identified through the Library Catalog or the following list of Louisiana Newspaper Holdings.

Note: Contact the Louisiana Room at (337) 482-6031 or for the most current holdings information.

Some Louisiana newspapers are also available online. One helpful resource is Chronicling America. Other online resources can be found on our Microforms Department page.
