This guide has been created to connect undergraduate and graduate students of French with useful resources at Hunter College & CUNY libraries, at public libraries in New York, and freely available on the web. This guide lists resources relevant to French language, literature, cinema, and cultural studies.

This guide is maintained by Jennifer Newman, English & Humanities Librarian.

Note: As of September 2020, this guide is a work in progress. Check back for updates and more information about journals and databases, finding books, and other resources.
