Sciences Po's Library
The Sciences Po Library holds the largest collection of social science documentation in Europe.
Consult its catalogue to find books and journals.
The reading rooms on levels 3 and 4 of 27 rue Saint-Guillaume provide open-stack access to all the latest books and journals on sociology, social issues and education.
Many of the journals are accessible online, sometimes for long periods: to access them using Sciences Po’s subscriptions, visit the “Electronic Resources” webpage.
Example: La Revue française de sociologie is available on the database Persee, from 1960 à 2019
