The Louisiana Digital Library



About the Louisiana Digital Library


The Louisiana Digital Library (LDL) is an online library containing photographs, maps, manuscript materials, books, oral histories, and more that document history and culture. Libraries, museums, archives, historical groups, and other institutions across the State contribute materials to the LDL. This state-wide digital library is used by anyone with access to the internet and an interest in the materials.

About the Contributing Institutions


There are currently 22 participating libraries, archives, museums, and historical centers participating in the LDL. Each institution contributes the digital items and the descriptive text for their collections. You will find that some of the collections, such as the GUMBO Project and the Teaching History in Louisiana Project, are collaborative projects that include materials from many institutions.
