To assist you in your studies and research, our special librarians have compiled a wealth of useful information in thematic guides by discipline.
Covering news, relevant resources, new acquisitions, tips and tricks, these guides are designed to complement information available on the Sciences Po library website.
The research library offers personalised support, particularly to doctoral school students and PhD students, who can take advantage of a session on Methodology of scientific information research at the beginning of each academic year.
It is also possible to request individual tutoring through the Book a librarian service.
The Sciences Po library also offers training courses on:
- Building your bibliography with Zotero. Zotero is a bibliographic management software that allows you to create a personal database from imported or manually entered references. Please follow this link to know the schedules and register to this training.
