One of the most important features of the St Andrews French project has been the degree to which it has cast its search wide, to include all of the major research collections in Europe and North America. This autumn this work will continue with work in the richest collections in Scandinavia. In November 2006 one member of the project team will be despatched to Copenhagen, to search the holdings of the Copenhagen Royal Library. This we already know to be a substantial collection of French material, though part of the work to be done will include a full search of the catalogues in the library itself.
Meanwhile a further member of the project team will visit Sweden, to view high priority books in three important collections, in Stockholm, NorrkÃ¶ping and Uppsala.
We are extremely grateful to the library staff in these libraries who have been extremely helpful in helping us compile a survey of their collections in advance of these visits.
