Articles about Louisiana can brush up against many other subjects: for instance, an article about a U.S. Senator from Louisiana is about Louisiana as well as about the U.S. Senate. Therefore, before working on an article, it is recommended to check the list of WikiProjects to see whether another WikiProject exists that may have established guidelines about the subject of the article in question.

(Of course, it is also good to be familiar with Wikipedia-wide policies and guidelines.)
