The Library

As a resource centre completing the education, the library offers a specialized collection on contemporary art composed of more than 5OOO documents.

The collection includes catalogues, DVDs, CD Roms, monographs, thematic works related to scenography, photography, visual and performing arts, design, as well as reference publications on history of art and aesthetics.

The library receives about thirty periodicals. The most recent ones cannot be borrowed but previous issues are available.

The table of contents of the collection can be accessed via the software “Kentika” at the following address :
and on the intranet : http://bibliothèque.local:8080.

You also may consult the notes of the documentary collection, the purchases of the month, the table of contents of the periodicals, of the RSS feeds such as Le Monde-culture, Le Figaro-culture or the online magazine Agôn.
You also may have access to the online Universalis Encyclopedia, as well as to the BNF (French National Library), the BMVR (The City Library of Regional Authority) of Nice, the media library of Monaco and the BSAD, from the website of the ENSBA (National Fine Arts School) of Paris, where a number of periodicals are processed since 1985.

Every user is given a personal area in the programme, which he can access with an individual ID and a password, in order to make on-line reservations, purchasing suggestions, and to constitute bibliographic folders.

A computer is devoted to the research and available at the library.
