External Users

La bibliothèque ne dispose pas de salle de lecture pour accueillir le public extérieur.

Nevertheless, items which cannot be located in another library in Paris are made available to external users by way of the Cuzin library (Faculty of Philosophy at Paris 1) for onsite consultation only and for a duration of 4 weeks. These library materials are delivered on demand via a shuttle.
