If any land is held by any person, firm, corporation, department or institution of the State of Alabama for the use and benefit of any institution or department of the State of Alabama, such land shall also be included in such list to be filed in the office of the Land Agent, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Such list shall be compiled under the supervision of the managing head of such institution or department, and the real estate described therein shall be numbered by parcel and described legally.
