French Studies

Scholarly resources in French Studies, including those covering Belgium, Canada, France, Luxembourg, Monaco, and Switzerland. The resources organized here are all freely available and have undergone a selection and evaluation process.

Description

The goals of this project are to identify, locate, and publicize the existence of major sets of microfilm pertaining to the history, culture, language and literature of France and francophone countries. The selected microfilm resources have significant research value and reflect holdings in European and North American libraries and archives.

This list was compiled by Ceres Birkhead (now retired from the University of Utah) as a project of CIFNAL.
