I maintain the bibliographic database of the BHF, which specializes in scientific publications in French and foreign languages concerning the history of France from the 5th century to 1995.

Field of research

Monographs, collective works (colloquia) and journal articles (online or offline, including many periodicals of regional learned societies) are listed, searched and indexed in order to increase their digital visibility by indicating, when possible, the availability of these documents in library catalogs (BnF, Sudoc).

The indexing is not only chronological and geographical but also thematic, following the standards of the semantic web.

Finally, numerous links allow for rebounds between bibliographic records and cited sources.

The Bibliographie de l'histoire de France is listed, among others, by the École des Chartes, the Mirabel network, Ménestrel and PSL.
