With documentary resources specialized in law, economics and business administration, as well as in information and communication sciences, the libraries of Panthéon-Assas create, conjointly, an impressive and extensive information network:
-    the University Library (SCD) expanding over three centers (Assas, Vaugirard, and Melun) with collections especially dedicated to students from L1 to M1.
-    30 specialized libraries, belonging to research centers, institutes, and reading rooms contain resources destined principally for M2, doctoral students, and researchers.
-    a collective database complete with online catalogues, publications, and periodicals, as well as databases for law, economics, business administration, and media, including examination annals, courses, theses, dissertations...

This prodigious network depends on three of Paris' vast academic libraries as well, each opened to Panthéon-Assas students:
-    the Sainte-Geneviève Library with approximately two million documents.
-    the Sainte-Barbe Library with 100000 consultable references.
-    the Cujas Library with over one million volumes, where Panthéon-Assas theses can be consulted and inter-library lending is arranged.

The new Assas Library

Under current renovation, the surface area of the entirely refreshed and modernized library at our Assas site will be multiplied threefold, augmenting both reading and computerized work space.

Thanks to free access to a large part of our collections, the creation of a lending capacity of 50000 volumes and the extension of our Wifi network, this new library will generate new services designed to improve and promote the university's documentary offering.
