The School of Architecture of the City and Territories provides a teaching and research framework conducive to the training of high-level architects. Supervision is provided by recognised teachers, practitioners and researchers. The School of Architecture is in itself a formidable working tool, with a library containing more than 27,000 documents (excluding periodicals).
The library opens onto both the school’s hall and the outside, occupying a nave and a mezzanine. It offers alcoves for individual work and large tables for groups. Most of the documents are self-service.
A secretary and two full time library assistants, aided by student monitors, are responsible for all services to readers, the management and development of specialised collections in architecture and urban planning (books, periodicals, DVDs, maps, student works) and the physical management of the premises.
The library is a service in line with the School’s current events: bibliographic tables linked to the School’s conferences and the teachers’ courses. The library follows the news on its Facebook page and its ‘press panorama’: a selection of articles from Libération, Le Monde, Les Échos posted on a panel opposite the cafeteria. It regularly organises conversations about books in the presence of their authors, who are teachers at the School.
