Abstract

Briefly discusses the origins, history and current working of the The Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris. Notes the computerised bibliographic database linked to the computerised national network. Advises that this database, BN OPALE, is to expand very soon as the progressive retrospective loading of old files is made and French libraries enter their own collections.
