Explore the Collection
The Franco-American Colleciton is one of the largest repositories of its kind in the North-East. The Collection contains tens of thousands of printed books, photographs, newspaper clippings and audio-visual recordings. As such, it is not yet possible to make much of this material avaliable online. However, new material is being added all the time, so be sure to check back regularly.
