The EHESS Russian and Soviet Image Library was created in 1985 by Marc Ferro, research director at EHESS in charge of the Cinema and History research team. It is a audiovisual and photo archive unique in France . Holdings are divided between animated images for 90% and still images for 10%. The collection includes over 3,000 hours of film, currently being converted from VHS to DVD format.
The Image library provides researchers and students with access to image archives essential to research on Russia and the Soviet Union (films, broadcasts, documentaries, posters, photographs, etc.), centralized for the first time and preserved in a single, easy-access format.
The Image Library does not own reproduction rights to the animated images in the collection. Images are intended for research purposes only. Access is reserved exclusively for students and researchers from academic and research institutions.
Access is free of charge.
On site viewing only. There are no loans and users are forbidden to make copies of the Library's documents.
