Welcome to histalu.orgThe site for the history of aluminium

A Research Centre Devoted to Aluminium’s Legacy

In 35 years, the IHA has acquired a unique set of resources on the history of aluminium and its industries.


You'll find : 

  • A Specialized library
  • Photographic collections
  • Audio-visual collections
  • Archives
  • Digital resources


Our research centre is regularly enriched through the acquisition of recent books, journals, and recent articles; the systematic archiving of research work and publications supported or produced by IHA; donations from individuals and companies in the aluminium sector.

Today, IHA is the only institution in France and one of the few in the world to offer such a wealth of documentation on aluminium and its history.
