Title: Armand Duplantier Family Letters Collection, 1777-1841

The Armand Duplantier Family Letters date from 1777 to 1841 and contain items from four generations of the Duplantier family, including Armand Duplantier, his uncle Claude Trenonay, Armand's son Armand Allard Duplantier, and granddaughter Amelie Augustine Duplantier Peniston. The collection's historical significance lies not only in what it can tell us about the history of Baton Rouge and nearby Pointe Coupee Parish, but also in what it reveals about the state's colonial period, Francophone Louisiana in the territorial and antebellum era, and the enduring legacy of the state's French antecedents.

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.
