Bibliothèques Ouvertes+

Le projet « Bibliothèques ouvertes de la Cité Descartes d’Université Paris-Est » concerne les quatre principales bibliothèques du site : celles de l’Université Gustave Eiffel et de l’École des Ponts ParisTech. Le site connaît un développement certain avec une croissance des effectifs étudiants, l’ouverture de la BU Georges Pérec de l'Université Gustave Eiffel et la rénovation de la bibliothèque de l’École des Ponts ParisTech en Learning Center. Les extensions sont mises en place de façon coordonnée, avec une offre répartie entre les bibliothèques.

The Open Libraries+ Initiative (Plan Bibliothèques Ouvertes+), initiated in February 2016 by the French Ministry for National Education, Higher Education and Research, aims primarily to improve student reception in university libraries by:

  • extending library opening hours in the evenings, at weekends and during holidays;
  • improving the quality of services offered to users.

Through University Paris-Est (project leader for the 2016-2019 period), the libraries of École des Ponts ParisTech and Université Gustave Eiffel (Georges-Pérec, École d'architecture de la ville & des territoires Paris-Est, ESIEE Paris) are receiving financial help to extend their opening hours.

As such the Ministry has allocated funding to Université Paris-Est for:

  • hiring student monitors and security staff in the establishments concerned to ensure extended opening hours in the evenings (until 10pm), Saturdays (from 11am to 5pm) and during university holidays;
  • rolling out a communication campaign to promote the system to Cité Descartes' users.

UPE also benefits from the creation of an Open Libraries+ Initiative coordinator job, whose role is to coordinate project implementation and develop documentary cooperation on a local scale.
