Louisiana Newspaper Project Printout

The 3rd edition of the Louisiana Newspaper Project Printout represents the records of the Louisiana Newspaper Project (LNP) as of October 1999. Additions made from October 1999 to December 2000 are included in Appendix A. Over 1900 individual newspaper titles and over 6,400 holdings records are included for repositories throughout Louisiana.

WHAT IS IN THE PRINTOUT

The Printout consists of bibliographic and holdings records for issues of Louisiana newspapers located during the project and retained on a permanent basis by Louisiana libraries and repositories. Current issues of newspapers that are discarded after a set time (for example, several months or a year) are not listed in this printout. As lagniappe, bibliographic records and holdings are listed for Mississippi newspapers held by the LSU Libraries.

This printout is derived from the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) national online United States Newspaper Program Union List Database. All records from the USNP, including those from other states, are available online to libraries that have access to OCLC Union List. LNP records include bibliographic information such as newspaper title, place of publication, publisher, beginning and ending dates of the newspaper when known, frequency of publication, OCLC numbers, and related newspaper titles. They also include holdings information such as the codes of libraries that have issues, the dates held, and the format of the holdings.

The LSU Libraries are committed to maintaining this file by adding or deleting information on Louisiana newspapers as it is reported to them. As always the online OCLC file represents the most current information on the location of newspapers listed in the USNP.
