FYI France: update, BM Lyon digital collections, Numelyo


F or anyone lucky enough to be in Lyon, this summer -- physically or, considering train & taxi & other labor-strikes, virtually --

BM Lyon, digital collections, Numelyo


The Bibliothèque Municipale de Lyon, home to one of the finest ancient manuscript collections in France, or anywhere, proudly has unified its digital offerings into this single well-organized and easily-accessible site.

One may find there, now -- online & available & fascinating --

-- plus, all superbly-presented,

-- if you have an interest in The Word or The Image, written or spoken or acted or sung or depicted or evoked, or printed, engraved, glued-to-a-wall, kept-forever, or memorialized in a photograph, and/or digitized... then France is a wonderful place... not the only reason, but it's one of the very many...


In addition to the above "Collections" see also, then, as I've been saying, the BMLyon's "parcours thématiques": thematic presentations of the above and many other topics -- online, in fulltext, and meticulously-annotated and sumptuously-illustrated, just point & click -- they offer both "expositions virtuelles" and "dossiers thématiques".

You can create your very own "ma bibliothèque numérique" online, too -- "ma sélection de documents", and "mes recherches" -- and no advertising, or at least I don't see any yet -- one wonderful thing about digital libraries generally, online, is the absence of the nauseating advertising flooding the online sites where nowadays we all must do all our work. One of my formerly-favorite non-French "commercial" sites now shows me underwear, every time I log-on... I'm trying to find the functionality elsewhere, now, and as soon as I do I'll log-off... Online digital libraries don't pose this particularly-irritating Internet problem.


And, finally, at the BM Lyon online, from their "Numelyo" service:

je participe -- a very-French & very-librarianly approach to "social media" -- you can participate in,



And virtually yours,


Jack Kessler,
