From the 1st of September to the 17th of October 2020, and contrary to what was indicated last week, the reading room of the Fonds ancient/Chinese Collection will be closed to the public due to the relocation of part of its collections.
However, the Chinese Collection remains at your disposal by email during this period and will do everything possible to assist you as usual in your research.
Thank you for your understanding.
Rich in works from China of the XXe and XXIe centuries, with particularly valuable collections from the Republican (1912-1949) and Maoist (1949-1976) periods, the Chinese collection is also developed in the fields of classical and popular culture. For more details, we invite you to read its detailed description.
It is a heritage fund, which can be consulted on site. Consultation requires prior (and free) registration with the Fonds ancien.
However, we advise you to make an appointment in all cases and as far in advance as possible, so that your research can be carried out in the best possible conditions.
Some of the works in the Chinese collection of the WML are available in the library catalogue.
