    • found: Info. from A. Stanton, Catalog Dept., Middleton Lib., LSU (official form of name of Baton Rouge campus remains Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College; both before and after establishment of LSU System in 1965, often shortened in publications to Louisiana State University (the more popular form); name of the campus (Baton Rouge) occasionally appears, although LSU does not approve its use in connection with the university name)
  • Editorial Notes

    • [Heading valid 1870-1877 and after 1964]
    • [LSU System estab. Feb. 6, 1965, includes campuses in Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Eunice, New Orleans, and Shreveport. Although official name of main campus in Baton Rouge remains "Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College," prevailing usage in publications since the system's foundation has been to deemphasize the last five words via typography, or to leave them off entirely. In effect, this constitutes a resumption of the name "Louisiana State University." Previously established AACR2 hdg., "Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge," used same cutoff date.]
