Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine - Library

 - FRANCE

The library from the Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine is conceived to become the pole of national and international documentary scene in contemporary architecture. Located at the first floor of the front pavilion of the Palais de Chaillot ('Paris' wing), the library represents 1280 m2 of public space. Its collections are composed of 45 000 books, 450 periodicals and many multimedia documents (documentary films, CD-ROM, databases,...).
S'inscrivant résolument dans les grandes missions de la Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine, la bibliothèque est ouverte à tous les publics, y compris le week-end. Elle accueille donc les publics spécialisés (étudiants, architectes, chercheurs, urbanistes, ...) en leur proposant de la documentation et des services adaptés à leurs besoins et participe à la sensibilisation du grand public en offrant un accès direct à ses collections.
