I wish to reserve a document (François-Mitterrand Library)
To consult a document that is not in the open-access collections, a request for access to the document is necessary.
The request can be made :
- in advance (every day - Remember: the Research Library is closed on Sundays): reservations can be made up to 30 days before my visit and until to 8 p.m. the day before my visit (5 p.m. on Fridays). If there is a problem, I will be informed via a message in my personal space,
- on the spot the same day (Monday to Saturday): you can order other documents on the spot from 1.30 to 5 p.m.
You have the option of requesting books in the morning for the afternoon.
Please noteA valid pass to a research library is required
I connect to espacepersonnel.bnf.fr

I put my Pass on the reader and I click on ‘Me connecter’
I type my ID and password and I click on ‘Me connecter’
I have to create an account. I click on “Créer un compte”
I want to search for a document in the library’s General Catalogue
Tip: I can connect to my personal space directly from catalogue.bnf.fr by clicking on ‘Espace personnel’
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.
I choose an existing reservation or I make a new reservation
If I have not booked a seat in a reading room yet, I will have to do it at the same time.
