LOUIS: LSU Overview

General Information

LOUIS: The Louisiana Library Network combines the resources of Louisiana's public and private academic libraries, along with a centralized support staff located on the LSU campus, to produce a dynamic library consortium.

The central support staff, commonly referred to as "LOUIS," provides many services to consortium members such as library automation, a union catalog, a digital library, electronic resources, authentication, training, consulting, and hosting related listservs and websites. Established in 1992 by the Board of Regents, LOUIS has 47 members and receives approximately $3.5 million annually in contracts and membership fees to support consortium members.
