Set up in 1992 as an internal resource when EFEO reopened its centre in Angkor, the Siem Reap Centre's library has grown significantly since 2002 and now includes 3.000 volumes in French, Khmer and English, a complete collection of maps of the country, and a number of computerised resources regularly updated by teams at the EFEO's Paris Centre. Most of the collections consist of material from the Angkor and Angkor Conservation Office archives from 1908 to 1975 (available on microfiche or CD-ROM on one of the library's public access computers), while other collections serve as documentary resources for the Centre's research teams: ancient Cambodian history, archaeology and architecture; epigraphy; social sciences.
