Current newspapers and periodicals
The Sciences Po Library offers its readers a collection of current newspapers and periodicals, from France and abroad, as well as back issues of French periodicals (FR) in its areas of specialization: politics, economics, society and culture, and international relations. These materials are available in print, microfilm, and/or electronic format, and, for the 1945-2005 period, as press clipping files.
These materials may be consulted at the following locations:
- magazines: 27 rue Saint-Guillaume, ground floor, for the current year
- daily newspapers: 27 rue Saint-Guillaume, ground floor, for the previous month (foreign newspapers are held for one month only; French newspapers - with the exception of Les Échos, Le Parisien and La Tribune - are held in the remote storage facility for the period prior to the year 2000, and in the stacks after 2000).
The library also has subscriptions to several newspapers and periodical databases, which provide access to the full text of newspapers and magazines from around the world.
For assistance in searching these databases, please see a librarian at the reference desk (ground floor, 30 rue Saint-Guillaume).
