Directory Assistance

Local and National Directory Assistance is provided to subscribers by the telephone companies to aid in the retrieval of destination numbers.

State Government Directory Assistance Service assists the general public as well as state agencies by providing the following information:

  • State of Louisiana government telephone numbers
  • Dialing instructions
  • Names of department heads and other state officials
  • Assistance in identifying the appropriate state agency

Telephone numbers not listed in the Louisiana State Government Telephone Directory or the public telephone directory can be made available to the public through the State Government Directory Assistance Operators. OTM can only include these numbers if the appropriate information is provided by the agency Telecommunications Coordinator.

Referrals for Disconnected Telephone Numbers

  • Disconnected Centrex Telephone Numbers in Baton Rouge--When dialing disconnected Centrex telephone numbers in Baton Rouge, the caller will receive a disconnect recording. However, OTM can provide specific referrals when warranted on most Centrex central office locations.
