Overview

Here is detailed information on bibliographic sources of French historical studies—in one indispensable volume. Librarians and researchers will find essential information on searching archives in France in chapters that discuss bibliographic access and physical documentation of French historical studies. Other chapters focus on the preservation of historical materials, comparisons of French and American history, heritage, bibliography, and archival resources, and explorations of the future of the Library of France—a leader in preserving French culture, historical resources, and intellectual access to all things French.

Fascinating and informative chapters in Bibliographic Foundations of French Historical Studies are derived from selected papers which were presented at the annual conference of the Association of the Bibliography of History in conjunction with the American Historical Association.

This comprehensive book covers a wide variety of topics including important new tools to bibliographic access, Canadian imprints about the French Revolution, the Trésor de la Langue Française—a computer archives of 2000 modern French texts, problems in developing a filmography of the French Revolution, searching pre-Revolutionary archives in France, the Archives of Lyon, the theory of classifying documents by their origin, post-Revolutionary connections between France and the New World, the notorious Institut Canadien de Montreal, and archival collections in French Louisiana.

Through Bibliographical Foundations of French Historical Studies, librarians and scholars explore the ever-changing nature of information sources and institutions which evolve continuously and occasionally erupt into revolutions of their own.
