History, sociology and philosophy of science
The Research library contains a broad choice of works dedicated to science studies, which combine various disciplines in order to understand science, from philosophy and economics to anthropology and psychology. Another privileged field is the relationship between contemporary society and technology, and in particular digital technologies.
Both libraries’ collections attach great importance to studies categorized by social or ethnic group, and, more specifically, gender studies. They also include materials relating to the study of research communities and laboratories.
