Hours and Contact Information

The Louisiana and Special Collections Reading Room is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Please check the Library's hours page for current hours. To verify hours of operation please call: (504) 280-6544. For requests or questions outside of the reading room's normal operating hours, please email

Appointments are not required, but if you are conducting research utilizing special collections materials, it is strongly encouraged that you contact us in advance of your visit. Special collections materials take time to retrieve, and we are not always able to retrieve them immediately at the time of the request.  Requests made in person may not be filled immediately and the patron may need to return on a pre-arranged date to view the requested material.
