Black Lives Matter and decolonisation in the Francophone world : bibliography of e-resources available through Cambridge University Library (03/08/2020) 


Over the years, Cambridge University Library has gathered an important collection of Francophone and (North) African / Caribbean material and postcolonial studies, through a selection policy in foreign languages and translations beyond what we receive by legal deposit. It ranges from history to philosophy, literature, sociology, politics or arts. However, only some of those resources are available as ebooks: unfortunately, few titles in French are currently available onlinewith the exception of the Open Access platform OpenEdition. A lot of extra (Anglophone) resources were opened to members of the University of Cambridge on temporary access during the COVID-19 outbreak. Cambridge University Library has just subscribed to the packages EBSCO Ebook Academic Collection and Proquest Academic Complete which total c. 400,000 ebooks. Gallica, the online portal of the French national libraryholds many resources (digitised books and periodicals), but because of copyright, only extracts are available for many relevant works. This list is only indicative and focuses on the 20th century. 


The list was produced with the support of the French department and I would like to thank in particular Hugo Azerad and Jean Khalfa. I would be happy to receive further suggestions for relevant e-resources available through iDiscover at
