Detailed information

Necessary steps before using Science Po (=collective card)

To use the Sciences Po library, you will need to ask the Graduate representative to add you to the collective card at the beginning of the semester.

You will then receive the confirmation by email from the AUP library that you are signed up to one of the collective library cards. This email will also contain 

  1. the collective card number 
  2. the username and password to access wireless and databases at Sciences Po library 

How to check out books?

To check out books, you will need to pick up the collective card at the entrance desk at Science Po (27, rue St. Guillaume). You will need the collective card number (six digits + “AUP” or “AMERICAN UNIVERSITY OF PARIS”) + your faculty/student id.

In general, most books are in closed stacks and have to be ordered. You will have to fill out a form and hand it in at the loan desk opposite the entrance desk. You can request online as well by clicking on the 'request button' in the holdings record. The book will be available 45 min later for check out.  

Do not forget to fill in the call number and the book details - see the library catalog.

Bring your logon and password as well to access the computers or the wireless at Sciences Po.

How to find online articles (use online resources)?

To use the online databases at Sciences Po, you will need the logon and the password given to you in the information email.

You can access the databases on the Sciences Po campus.

Two Sciences Po Libraries

The Science Po School has two library buildingsboth on rue St. Guillaume

  1. The ‘old’ five floor library on 27, rue St. Guillaume (here, you get the collective card to check out books)
  2. The ‘new’ five floor library on 30, rue St. Guillaume

When is the library open?

About opening hours, see the web page/link.

About late books

Keep in mind that the collective card is blocked for the amount of days that you bring back the book late (e.g. the book is returned 10 days late, the collective card is blocked for another 10 days beginning on the day you returned the book).
