This research project "Ampère and the history of electricity" is developed by the CRHST with the partnership of the Académie des sciences, la Société des amis d'Ampère, le Musée Ampère à Poleymieux et l'Ecole Centrale Lyon. It was financed by the Ministère de la Recherche (programm "Création de produits de médiation scientifique en libre accès sur l'internet"), EDF Fondation, CNRS et la Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie.
This website houses digital images and transcriptions of various André-Marie Ampère manuscripts. The site is geared toward users fluent in French. The site offers an English language version, but even the English pages contain some French text, which makes the site difficult for non-speakers to navigate. The manuscripts are organized by type and topic, and they are searchable, although the search almost certainly recognizes only French keywords and phrases. The site also contains other contemporary primary sources on the field of electro-magnetism and a bibliography of Ampère's published works.
