This OAI repository was created by the Bibliothèque nationale de France (French National Library) to facilitate the access to digitized documents and to improve the diffusion and exchange of descriptive metadata. It contains metadata about public domain documents that have been digitized, mostly using a BnF copy. This repository gives access to nearly 980,000 documents: books, images, newspapers, serials, maps, music scores, sound and music
