Our surveys, studies and observations conducted by The Marketing Department of the library on your practices and expectations.

Survey on the use of image : faculty

77% of Sciences Po teachers believe that images are necessary to ensure their teaching and 44% create their own and specific visuals for their courses.
All disciplines use all types of images. The survey carried out by the Direction des Ressources et de l'Information scientifique and the Direction des Etudes et de l'Innovation Pédagogique allows to know the current pedagogical uses of the image at Sciences Po. It describes the range of services offered by the library as well as its projects.

Survey on the use of non-circulating library material

The Sciences Po library has been conducting surveys on the use of non-circulating library material since 2007. Over the course of a week, we analyze all the books consulted by users in the library’s reading rooms. This analysis allows us to have a better understanding of the material being consulted and, over time, to observe changes in the use of material in the reading rooms, in support (or not) of work done on library premises.
