Welcome! We invite you to search our collections database. If you need assistance from Historical Center staff, call (318) 746-7717 or e-mail Pam Carlisle
To search or browse our COLLECTIONS DATABASE for items such as objects, photographs, manuscripts and books, please click here.
We recommend 'keyword search' as the most comprehensive search. Use a word you think will appear in the records you are searching for. For example, 'steamboat' or 'Vance' (a last name) or 'Plain Dealing' (a town). If you just want to find records of photos, for example, type in your keyword and click on 'Photos' in the 'Record Types' field." You could also click 'Only records with images' under 'Search In' if you only want records with attached digital images.
