Collections

The IAP’s libray maintains a collection of over 7,000 books and subscribes to 43 of journals in both print and electronic copy.

System of working documents

Library documents are classified in sections:
a) REFERENCES = Dictionaries and encyclopedias, directories, handbooks, etc. (stacks A1, G1 et H);
b) MASTER = selection of relevant books for the students (stack A2);
c) RESEARCH = specialized books covering various research fields important to the IAP (stacks B-G) ;
d) PERIODICALS = general scientific journals («  La recherche », «  Nature », «  Science », ...) and academic scientific journals («  Astrophysical Journal », «  Astronomy & Astrophysics », «  Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society », ...).

The documents are freely available unless otherwise indicated.

N.B.: The MASTER section is primarily intended for student use.

Classification system

Our own library classification system is used for the majority of Library documents (sections REFERENCES and RESEARCH). The Dewey Decimal Classification system is used for the MASTER section.
