Whether you are an apprentice researcher or a bona fide expert, here is why Sorbonne University’s document portal is your best friend!

Only four months after its establishment, the document portal of Sorbonne University’s libraries has already passed the 20,000 user milestone.

The document portal of Sorbonne University’s libraries is THE key to opening doors for students, researchers and lecturers alike: a single point of access to millions of bibliographical references, scientific articles and reference works in just a few clicks!

This portal, made available online in 2015, is one-of-a-kind, enabling students to conduct research outside of their discipline of study: an apprentice researcher in biochemistry can access scientific articles on molecular archaeology and a musicology student can expand his or her knowledge of acoustic bioengineering. It’s an ideal tool for when you are working on a disciplinary boundary ‑ the history of science, for example.

 

MILLIONS OF BIBLIOGRAPHICAL REFERENCES ON A SINGLE PORTAL

1800000 online ressources

Once completed, there will be almost 2 million resources available on the portal! You will also find works available from the libraries’ collections of reviews, theses, articles, archives and digitized museum collections. The list of the main electronic resources can be filtered by institution, type of resource or discipline, as well as subject pathways covering more than eight disciplines ranging from art to law and humanities, as well as economics, health and science.

SORBONNE UNIVERSITY IN YOUR POCKET!

A responsive website

As research itself is mobile, the document platform was designed to be accessible on smartphones and tablets so that students and researchers could make use of it at any time. 

You no longer need to actually go to the library to print out a publication or to work alone just because there is no available workroom.Sorbonne University’s portal provides access to all the practical information on its libraries (hours of operation, location) and offers innovative services, such as the "Affluences" ("Crowd“) app to avoid long lines.
