With roughly four linear miles of holdings, LaRC's vast collections will never all be available online. However, we constantly add to our extensive digital resources in order to make our holdings as widely and easily available as possible. LaRC's online holdings are available to everyone on an equal basis; researchers never need a user-ID or password to view them. Here are three of our newest digital collections.

The Registre du Comite Medical de la Nouvelle Orleans, 1816 - 1854, is the official document of the Eastern licensing district of the state of Louisiana and records the names of licensed pharmacists and physicians.

Algernon Badger Family Papers, 1813-1920. Badger is best-known as Chief of the Metropolitan Police of New Orleans from 1870 to 1875. He was on the front lines of the increasing political unrest between Southern white conservatives and Louisiana’s Reconstruction-era government and defended the city from multiple riots and attempted insurrection by the White League. The most notable of these conflicts was the Battle of Liberty Place. He resigned to become state tax collector and went on to hold a number of political offices in Louisiana, including postmaster of New Orleans and Customs House appraiser.

Alfred S. Lippman collection of Civil War letters, 1848-1866. Consists primarily of Civil War letters written by Union soldiers in the south to their families in the north. The letters describe news of skirmishes and fighting, daily camp life, illness and disease, slavery and opinions and observations about their experiences.

LaRC thanks Pat Vince, Bernadette Birzer, and Jeff Rubin of the library's Digital Initiatives and Publishing Department for their expertise in making these holdings available online.
