New "très grande bibliothèque" in the works

The ground has been broken on a new TGB in Paris, the BULAC, or Bibliothèque universitaire des langues et civilizations. The new institution, projected to open in 2011, will house the Langues’O and its library as well as the collections of 23 other libraries focusing on the languages and civilizations of Asia, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe which are currently scattered around the Paris region.
