The Library collects materials in all areas of French literature, including literary criticism, philosophy, and theory. The Library maintains a strong collection in all divisions of French literature, from the medieval period to the present. The Library also collects in the area of Francophone studies, including, but not limited to, material about Africa, the Caribbean, Canada, and French-speaking Europe. The Library collects few introductory language textbooks, but does collect French language dictionaries and other language reference material. The French collection is limited to materials primarily published in France. Materials on French subjects published outside France are listed with their respective provenance.
Most French Studies reference materials are kept in Doe Library's North Reading Room. The major part of the collection is located in the Gardner (MAIN) Stacks, with additional materials in Moffitt Library. Some materials, particularly in the area of medieval literature, are housed in the Bancroft Library, as are manuscript and archival collections.
