Co-created with the Museum in 1975, the Library specializes in Gallo-Roman history and archaeology with particular emphasis on the following domains
- Epigraphy (the science of inscriptions)
- Numismatics (the study of money)
- Antique artisanry: ceramic, metal, and glassmaker
The collection also contains works on Prehistory, the Bronze Age, and the Iron Age. Approximately a hundred works, edited between the 16th and 19th centuries and consecrated to the history of Lyon, enrich the library, as well as specialized periodicals in history, archaeology, and museology. DVDs and CD-ROMs offer virtual archaeological visits.
The library, integrated into the conservation space, can be used to enrich general knowledge, contribute to a teaching project, or conduct specialized research at a high level.
Services : Consultation of online catalogue, Internet access, bibliographic research assistance, Museum press and exhibit reviews dating from 1998.
