FYI France: finding good French texts online -- INALF/CCRTI

The new W3 site of the INALF / Institut NAtional de la Langue Française -- their CCRTI / Catalogue Critique des Ressources Textuelles sur Internet -- may be of great interest to people here, for at least two reasons:

  1. the site filters online French literary text resources -- an "information overload" solution, extremely useful now to anyone doing teaching or serious research;

  2. the site is French -- a fascinating example of "how foreigners do it", in the quickly - globalizing world of the Internet and digital information;

-- and there are welcome surprises, at CCRTI, on both counts.

The CCRTI already contains references and links to 22 remarkable projects: something of interest to everyone here -- have a look, for example, at Textes Electroniques Clandestins du dix - huitième siècle --
