Francophone Countries and Regions of France

So, you are researching Francophone countries, or maybe regions in France.
Here are some resources that can get you started:

  • The library catalog:  Look up your country/region. Most books will be in the geography section (910's) or history-by-country section (940-972), but you will also find good information in cookbooks, science, architecture, arts, etc. Some books may be about multiple countries in a region and you will need to use the index or ToC to find yours. Note that many of these resources are already set aside for you on a cart.

  • Webpath Express:  While you are in the library catalog, click on Webpath Express for a list of websites on your topic that are geared toward students k-12. Remember to try different keywords!
When you are looking at a resource, remember to use strategic searching! If the website is about architecture in all of France, use ctrl-F (PC) or comnd-F (mac) to find the part of the page with your information.

Cite your sources!

This year, we are introducing a web-based tool called NoodleTools, to help you keep track of the resources that you use.
