ABOUT THE CENTER
The Center for Louisiana Studies is dedicated to researching, publicizing, promoting, and preserving Louisiana’s cultures and history. Since 1973, the Center has worked not only to preserve the state’s rich heritage, but also to make it accessible to scholars, students, and the general public.
The Center is headquartered at the J. Arthur Roy House, a historic National Register property and the oldest building on the University's campus. Our archives are housed on the 3rd floor of Edith Garland Dupré Library, but you may begin your research journey with a visit to the Roy House's Archive Room. We encourage you to browse the UL Press Bookshop and visit our reading room while you're here. We carry UL Press publications and other Louisiana titles, as well as gifts crafted by Louisiana artists and artisans.
