Hal and MédiHal are multidisciplinary open archives that host for one scientific publications and for the other visual and sound data in the framework of scientific research. Together, these two platforms hold more than 850 000 scientific documents.

The Hal-Résif media library was initially created to complete the future website of the Transversal Seismicity Action. In 2018, its perimeter was expanded. It is now a true Résif media library. You will find there :

– documents illustrating the construction and life of Résif : photos of the stations, maps of the network, videos, posters presenting the project…
– documents related to seismic events in metropolitan France and overseas departments such as the Teil in 2019 or Barcelonnette in 2014: photos of damage caused by earthquakes, images of post-earthquake missions, post-earthquake reports … .

With rare exceptions, the images and other documents in the media library are distributed under a Creative Common “Attribution 4.0 International” (CC BY 4.0) license, i.e. their use, transformation or any other use, including commercial, is free, subject to quotation from the author.

By February 2021, the collection had grown to over 500 items.

Each document is associated with reliable and complete metadata to help understand the document: a precise description of the photo, a meaningful title, keywords allowing for a specific search and various links allowing to go deeper into the subject if necessary.

Since its creation, the resources have been consulted more than 70,000 times. The evolution of consultations has increased over the last three years: 2,730 consultations in 2018, 29,800 in 2019 and 33,000 in 2020.

Here are examples of photos deposited in the open archive Hal-Résif.
