remained with the News for nearly two years covering the opening months of the Civil War before joining the staff of

Title: Louisiana State Documents Digital Archive
Louisiana law requires that state agencies submit copies of their publications to the Recorder of Documents for distribution to the member libraries of the Louisiana State Document Depository Program. This program preserves and assures the availability of state publications for use by the public throughout the state.
State agencies are allowed to fulfill their statutory obligation to participate in the Depository Program by providing documents in electronic format. The primary goal of the Digital Archive is to provide the public with permanent access to these digital publications that state agencies submit.
Louisiana state documents, print and digital, are cataloged in the State Library's online catalog and are available for use by all libraries regardless of depository status.
