The National Repertory of French twentieth century literary manuscripts

The National Repertory of French twentieth century literary manuscripts, set up since 1995 in the Manuscript Department of the French National Library -framed by a number of partners- began by integrating the collections of the French National Library. Taken over by the Department of books and reading from 1997 to 2006, the repertory was extended by adopting a rigorous delineation of bibliographic domains and fields; the collection of data being carried out across the whole of the French territory thanks to a programme of surveys on a regional scale. From 1997 it has been available in Intermarc format, and since then converted to DTD EAD in 2006.
