Bibliotheque nationale de France

Catalyzed by hundreds of years of royal book collections and finally realized in 1998, the Bibliotheque nationale de France (BnF) stands as the country's national library and archive. "The missions of the BnF are to collect, preserve, enrich and make available the national documentary heritage". With over 14 million books and magazines as well as manuscript, print, photography, map, score, coin, medal, sound, video, and costume collections, the BnF houses a wealth of resources. As the collection continues to grow, the BnF is committed to making materials digitally accessible worldwide.
