Moideen, P. S. M.
A 2-month study trip was made in 1982 to 4 major repositories of Indian archival material in France and 2 major repositories in the United Kingdom in order to draw up a detailed inventory of dossiers, other file units, and isolated individual documents related to the history of India that are located in these repositories. The repositories visited included the Depot des Archives d'outre-mer, located in Aix-en-Provence; the Archives Nationales, located in Paris; the Section d'outre-mer d'Archives Nationales; the Archives du Departement des Affaires etrangeres, located in Paris; the India Office Library and Records, located in London; and the British Library, also located in London. This publication describes the study trip and the Indian archival material present in these repositories. It is recommended that microfilm copies of the material be acquired by the National Archives of India and acquisition priorities are outlined. Extensive appendices present a listing of the materials located, inventoried by archive group or similar descriptive unit and by class or series thereunder; a trip itinerary; a sample photocopy request form from the Archives Nationales; and a cost estimate for microfilming materials from the archives of France.
