“A team of documentalists – genuine information and digital technology mediators – provides students and teaching/research staff with access to high-quality scientific information.”
Documentary training & support
Throughout the year, the documentalists organise documentary training courses for Master 2 students and, on request, for doctoral students.
Personalised support is also available to students to provide them with targeted accompaniment in their search for information.
The objectives of these training courses are:
- to identify essential sources and the different search tools;
- to identify and assess the relevance, quality and validity of the information collected (develop a critical mind);
- to know how to organise and manage the results of their search (managing bibliographic references): Scientific bibliography presentation guide (French)
- to organiser and automate online monitoring: of web pages, RSS flows, databases, blogs, etc.;
- to assess the development of open access resources in the fields of economics and the social sciences.
On the course sharing platform, you can find all the tutorials to assist you in using the catalogue and the documentary training media provided throughout the year (restricted access).
