The Archives de littérature du Moyen Âge (ARLIMA) were established to help medievalist students and researchers, for whom drawing up bibliographies has become more and more difficult with the explosion of available print and electronic resources.

To simplify access to precise, reliable and up-to-date bibliography, ARLIMA was launched 1 September 2005 and made freely available to the public. Its intention is to provide as complete as possible bibliographical coverage on medieval texts and authors, for the most part French and Latin, but including where possible other Western European languages.

The task of populating ARLIMA follows no strict protocol but rather relies on chance findings by researchers. As a result, the resources available do not claim to be either exhaustible nor infallible, although contributors do strive to achieve both !

ARLIMA is not a listing of web-sites, but simply a catalogue of printed works (with few exceptions).

Laurent Brun, Assistant professor of French at the University of Ottawa (Canada), directs, edits and posts ARLIMA’s strategy and content.
