1787-1794 The French Revolution Digital Archive

Postby FBC-Elvas, Portugal » February 28th, 2014, 4:15 pm

The French Revolution Digital Archive (FRDA) is a multi-year collaboration of the Stanford University Libraries and the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) to produce a digital version of the key research sources of the French Revolution and make them available to the international scholarly community. The archive is based around two main resources, the Archives parlementaires and a vast corpus of images first brought together in 1989 and known as the Images de la Revolution française.

The Archives parlementaires is a chronologically-ordered edited collection of sources on the French Revolution. Because of copyright limitations, FRDA contains the AP volumes covering the years 1787-1794.

The Images are composed of high-resolution digital images of approximately 14 000 individual visual items, primarily prints, but also illustrations, medals, coins, and other objects, which display aspects of the Revolution.

Thanks, Sarah! This will be an invaluble resource for students of our period of interest! Hopefully a translation into other languages (and for me especially English) will also be performed.
