The GAM - Medieval Architecture Research Group's documentary resource collection, established at the same time as the research center itself, focuses on the history, archeology and iconography of material culture and the history and archeology of land use and occupancy in rural and urban medieval France and Italy.
Holdings include monographs, offprints, periodicals, as well as the GAM's research archives and image databases. The library's collections have grown over time through donations such as the personal library of the GAM's founder and former Director Jean-Marie Pesez (1998) and a part of rural historian Marcel Lachiver's library (2008). In 2013, François Piponnier, archeologist and specialist in post mortem inventories and medieval costume, donated a part of his library and archives.
The library is open to EHESS researchers and to PhD students in EHESS' Department of History and Civilizations.Outside researchers and graduate students (Master's +) can also access the library on presentation of their professional ID, student card or proof of research.
On-site consultation by appointment.
