Collections and services


From the teaching kit to the USB flash drive: an encyclopedic collection on a variety of media

Databases, electronic periodicals and learned publications

Full text databases cover a wide variety of fields such as law (Lexilaser), the press (Le Monde on CD-ROM), etc.The collection is rounded out by databases containing factual or numerical data (produced, inter alia, by DAFSA (Documentation d’Analyse Financière Société Anonyme) and the National Institute for Statistics and Economic Research (Institut National de la Statistique et des Etudes Economiques/INSEE).

Some scientific journals are (or were) published on CD-ROM after their paper version has appeared and before being made available online (e.g. Bulletin critique des Annales islamologiques). Other publications, such as the Journal de parodontologie et d’implantologie orale, coexist in printed and CD-ROM versions.

The collection also includes “gray literature”, including in particular theses published in electronic form (diskettes, files, CD-ROM, etc.). These are published by certain higher education institutions such as the University of Montpellier 2 (e.g. theses on Life Sciences: Mémoires géosciences-Montpellier, published on CD-ROM since 2002).

Also worthy of mention are minutes from one-off and regular conferences on current topics in medicine, aerospace (e.g. conferences held by the European Space Agency), etc.
