Lara Jennifer Moore: Restoring Order: The Ecole des Chartes and the Organization of Archives and Libraries in France, 1820-1870, 2008

This book is about how the French governments of the nineteenth century dealt with the collections left behind by the revolution. What did they choose to preserve, or ignore? How did they distinguish between the authentic sources of national history and the irrelevant debris of a bygone age? How did they organize the materials they did deem relevant into a national network of libraries and archives?
