The authors begin with a brief overview of the BnF's work to promote French-language culture from around the world, then studies the library's resource centre for the French-speaking world. The establishment of a French-language culture service involved bringing together collections covering a range of disciplines in the library's open-access upper level and setting up a web portal providing online access to a selection of resources. The article also discusses the BnF's relationship with its partners, particularly in the field of digital resources.
