>Louisiana Historical Records Advisory Board

>The Louisiana Historical Records Advisory Board was created by executive order in 1998 to coordinate and facilitate the efforts of historical records repositories and other informational agencies within the state of Louisiana in the collection, preservation, and publication of the important historical documents of the state. The Board consists of twelve members who are appointed by the Governor. The State Archivist chairs the Board and serves as the State Historical Records Coordinator.

The Mission of the Louisiana Historical Records Advisory Board (LHRAB) is to assist in, support, coordinate and advocate the identification, collection, preservation, management, use and accessibility of records that document all of Louisiana’s people, communities, organizations, businesses, and governments. It is the Vision of the LHRAB that the historical records of all Louisiana’s people will be identified, collected, preserved, maintained, made available to and used by Louisianians to increase their knowledge of the history and cultures of this diverse state and to ensure their rights.
