Activities of the Pedagogical Resource DEPARTMENT

Documentary Resources

At the heart of the School, the library La Source is a place of information, study, and social exchange. Students can find all the information they need to succeed in their educational program and to document their projects: course manuals and books on the topics taught at the School, student assignments, general and specialist press. Electronic resources (thematic databases, journals, e-books) are accessible remotely  by authentication on Portail Documentaire.

Training - Advice

The Pedagogical Resource section welcomes, educates, and trains students in skills such as documentary research, querying databases, and  formatting bibliographical references.
Each student can ask for an individual appointment with the librarian in charge of his or her course in order to be assisted with research or training on bibliographical tools.
Teachers also benefit from support for their educational projects.
