Our Norman structures

The heritage of notable books and libraries is quite extensive, and at the same time it is not very accessible. The World Horse Library is a research center represented by the MRSH CNRS University of Caen who created a virtual library. Its aim is to make accessible and give value to the contents
of multiple libraries in a large virtual library. With just a few clicks, specialists, expert amateurs, and the public will find texts, printed matter, manuscripts, images, drawings and photos.
