01 I wish to request a document (François-Mitterrand Library)
The request can be made for the same day or up to 30 days in advance.
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 type my ID and password and I click on ‘Me connecter’
I create an account: how to create an account
03 I want to search for a document in the library’s catalog
04 Tip: I can connect to my personal space directly from catalogue.bnf.fr by clicking on ‘Espace personnel’
05 I click on ‘Réserver’
I can also bookmark the document by clicking ‘Ajouter à mes notices’ to easily reserve it later.
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 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
After entering my ID and password if requested, I click on ‘Réservation site François-Mitterrand’, then on the days where a request was made.
