French Pamphlets

The Collaborative Initiative for French Language Collections (CIFNAL) is working on a new catalog of online French Pamphlets. The catalog will be a database resource able to link users to full-text, digital facsimiles of French pamphlets made accessible by CIFNAL member institutions, international partner collections, and other freely accessible digital library collections, such as the Bibliothèque Nationale de France’s Gallica collection.

A core group of interested CIFNAL members are helping to organize the project. Due the collaborative nature of the project, interested partners will be able to easily add their digitized content to the project database.  The resulting online finding aid will have the ability to link users directly into our institutional collections, improving access for scholars and researchers around the world.

Additional details are available at www.frenchpamphlets.org.  For more information, Contact CIFNAL.

Featured: Bibliothèque Bleue

CIFNAL is collaborating with the University of Chicago to add text-searching and analysis capabilities to Bibliothèque Bleue, a collection of fiction, popularized histories, and advice manuals printed in France in the 17th to the early 19th centuries.
