Reserve a Document

Navigate step by step


01 I wish to request a document (François-Mitterrand Library)

For all documents unavailable on the shelves, a documentation request is necessary.
The request can be made for the same day or up to 30 days in advance.
Please note
A valid pass to a research library required

02 I visit espacepersonnel.bnf.fr

I am using a library station
I put my card on the reader and I click on ‘Me connecter’
 

 

I already have an ID/password
I type my ID and password and I click on ‘Me connecter’
 
I don’t have an ID/password
I create an account: how to create an account

03 I want to search for a document in the library’s catalog

I can research the catalog.
Please note
I am automatically connected to my personal space.

04 Tip: I can connect to my personal space directly from catalogue.bnf.fr by clicking on ‘Espace personnel’


05 I click on ‘Réserver’

After finding the document I wish to reserve, I click on the ‘Réserver’ button
 
 
Please note
I can also bookmark the document by clicking ‘Ajouter à mes notices’ to easily reserve it later.
Beware 
If the ‘Réserver’ button is not available, it is because the document is freely accessible or because I am not connected to my personal space: I can connect by following step 1 or step 4.

06 I indicate the desired delivery day

I choose my day, then click on ‘Valider’
 
Please note
I have not booked a seat in a reading room beforehand, I will need to do it at the same time.

07 I consult my bookmarked requests

I can consult my bookmarked searches by going to espacepersonnel.bnf.fr.
After entering my ID and password if requested, I click on ‘Réservation site François-Mitterrand’, then on the days where a request was made.

08 Logging out

Logging out is advised for confidentiality reasons when using a public computer at the Library.
