LOUIS: The Louisiana Library Network
LOUIS: The Louisiana Library Network is a project of the Louisiana Academic Library Information Network (LALINC), a consortium of public and private college and university libraries. This partnership, established in 1992 by academic library deans and directors, currently has 47 members, and is funded by LALINC members and the Louisiana Board of Regents.

With a centralized support staff, LOUIS combines the collective resources of all members to produce a dynamic library consortium. LOUIS provides member-approved initiatives, which include information technology solutions such as an integrated library system, an interlibrary loan system, electronic scholarly resources, remote access to resources any time, any place, as well as a host of other services.

LOUIS is growing, adding new member institutions, as a result of the continued efforts of the state to refine the community and technical college system.

LALINC members elect an Executive Board to oversee the initiatives of the consortium.
