The Libraries of Vienne
"The construction of the mediatheque in 2011 is a bet, on the future at a time when current events put in doubt the general interest in the Commons discussion of paper documents... because now all is available on-the-Internet, individualism has become The Rule, all communication is at-a-distance...
"The opening of a mediatheque is an affirmation, of the importance of access to information, to education and training, and to placing culture and interest in places open to everyone, both socially and among-the-generations.
"It is a wish, to offer services adapted to the needs of the public as well as to the new cultural practices:
"-- the mediatheque assists in the construction of a vision, as broad and complete as possible, of knowledge and creative works, this is why it is important to offer simultaneously writings, music, and the cinema, as well as the systems which provide access to online data ; the mediatheque is truly a tool of popular education
"-- the mediatheque does not propose only documentary resources ; it is a place, for exchange, interactivity, the cultural dynamism of life ; the mediatheque thruoughout the year organizes exhibitions, meetings, workshops, conferences, shows...
"The mediatheque is arranged on 3 levels:
"The Trente Building is accessible to the disabled -- an elevator provides access to all 3 levels.
"On each level:
"The thrust, of what we are offering:
Aaand, among the "digital library" offerings currently on-display -- this is where you get your "work" done, perhaps... -- currently-on-offer, at the médiathèque de Vienne,
"DOSSIER THÉMATIQUE: SUR LES TRACES DU CONCILE DE VIENNE -- here you will find a selection of documents belonging to the mediatheque concerning the Council of Vienna and the Order of the Templars..."
-- extensive bibliographies, suggesting works held in the collection relevant to the theme --
And other libraries in Vienne, all connected to the above:
And so... if you've ever been interested in Knights-In-Armour, Knights & Ladies, the Knights Templars their birth & strength & dissolution, the Crusades & Medieval & Emerging-Renaissance France, and all the many machinations & power-politics of early French public finance & royalty & noblesse oblige... then travel to Vienne and read through these... et voilà a legitimate sabbatical-project, complete with related bandes dessinés for the kids and novels for the significant-other to enjoy while you work through the heavier sources...
Just a thought.
