Recommended Databases

Limiting to French Resources

Some of our resources are exclusively in English (like Credo). Others, like WorldCat, Nexis Uni, and subject-specific databases will allow you to filter your results by language after searching. You can also search using French keywords.

Remember names don't always translate literally. For example, The French West India Company = La Compagnie française des Indes occidentales.
