The American Library in Paris is spilling over with stories, histories, and mysteries waiting to be researched.  The library’s archives are rich and vast, and there are many possible stories to uncover.

A couple of possible future projects include further development of the Library’s Special Collections. The series of non-circulating books were once owned by important library figures and need finding aids, much like the one 2018 research students created on Nadia Boulanger and 2019 students created on Janet Flanner. Research on World War I and World War II could also be conducted, as there is no shortage of archives in the war-born Library on the topic.

Read on to discover more about potential future projects that you (yes, you!) could complete.
