The BIE Library is a source of high-quality information on Expos, composed of some 5,000 works dating back to 1851 until the present day.

The memory of past Expos is thus conserved by the BIE for the essential purpose of being able to transmit past experiences onto future generations.

The collection of works relates to the organisation of international exhibitions since 1851. It includes books, reports, catalogues, illustrated works of memorable moments, etc.

All the works in the library may be consulted by the general public upon appointment, which can be done by telephone (+33 1 45 00 38 63) or by email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
