The Louisiana Archives and Manuscripts Association promotes the role of archives in the preservation of our national, state, and local heritage by cooperating with Louisiana's public and private archival repositories in their work of collecting, conserving, and making accessible to the public manuscript, printed, graphic arts, and audio materials of historical significance.

LAMA publishes the Louisiana Archives and Manuscripts Association Newsletter twice yearly in Spring and Fall.

In March 2018, the LAMA Board of Directors approved a Diversity and Inclusion Statement. It reflects and affirms the values expressed by our colleagues from the Society of American Archivists, Society of Southwestern Archivists, and Society of California Archivists.
