During the inventory week, the processing time for your drive requests may increase. Please check the opening and closing dates of your usual library.

Why inventory the collections?

The inventory allows us to find decommissioned books, to locate missing documents, more generally to have an accurate image of the collections that we put at your disposal. This operation is carried out every year.

Why close libraries?

L'inventaire nécessite plusieurs jours de fermeture. C'est une activité bruyante : tous les documents en salle sont « bippés », déplacés, rangés... C'est aussi une activité longue et très minutieuse !

Cette année, les équipes de la BU Centre vont inventorier 40 000 documents, celles de la BU Beaulieu 60 000, pendant que la BU Villejean Santé va continuer de déménager des collections pour les travaux à venir de la salle Fleming.

The inventory requires several days of closure. It is a noisy activity: all documents in the room are "bleeped", moved, organized...It's also a long activity!
This year, the teams of the BU Centre will inventory 40,000 documents thoseof the Beaulieu university library 60,000, while the BU Villejean Santé will continue to move collections for the forthcoming works in the Fleming room.
