Welcome to the Library Guide for French Studies!

We hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in French Studies. We have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty involved in French Studies.

Feel free to contact Karen by email or by telephone if you have a question about library services or you need some help finding resources. She is also available by appointment to conduct research workshops for classes, or to assist individual students and faculty with research related to French Studies.

Faculty are invited to contact Prof. Holley to suggest specific items for purchase that address curriculum, teaching, or research needs.
