The Institut de la gestion publique et du développement économique (IGPDE), run by the French economic and finance ministry, publishes a series of works focusing on economic history and public management. Their catalogue includes the latest 2011 releases as well as older reference works. For the inauguration of the site, ten books have been made available online, including five in full text on open access. All are available for order in digital version (EPUB and PDF) or in their paper version. The collection will expand by more than forty titles next year, half of which will be available in full text on open access, divided into four collections: “Economic history, 19th-20th centuries”; “Economic history, Ancien Régime”; “Economic history, Middle Ages”; “Public Management”.
