EPHE Archive Services

EPHE Archive Services function under the aegis of The Department of Documentation, Libraries and Archives. Since 2013, it has been in charge of collecting, preserving, cataloguing and communicating the various collections developed by the school since its creation in 1868 (administrative, teaching, research) and certain archives donated or bequeathed to the school (such as the Paris, Marichal, Geoltrain, Lejeune or Corbin archives).

Certain collections, directly linked to specialized research themes, were held in the different libraries supervised by the Service (Egyptology, Mongolian and Siberian studies, Tibetan studies, Life and Earth Sciences), these archives are now transferred to the Humathèque, on the campus Condorcet site.
