The collections at the Fenouillères library are tailored to the teaching and research carried out on the campus: Arts, Humanities, Languages and Social Sciences.

Special features:

The library houses three research areas:

  • A research area, whose holdings have been awarded the national label "collections of excellence - CollEx", offers free access to research-level documents on two themes: the history of French colonization and the history of the Mediterranean East in the Ottoman period.

    This area also features a working room reserved for researchers at doctoral level and above, with controlled access.
  • A Gao Xingjian space, the first Chinese-language writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature (2000). Developed in partnership with the library of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the ERD Gao Xingjian acquires all documentary resources (all languages, all media) relating to the work of this author.
  • An André Miquel space, specializing in classical Arabic language and literature. This area provides researchers and advanced students with specialized documentation in the field of Arabic studies.

Among its remarkable collections, the Fenouillères library holds the Norton Cru fonds.

Donated by Hélène Vogel-Cru in 1961, it comprises over four hundred novels and accounts of the 1914-1918 war. The corpus is the one on which Jean Norton CRU, a former poilu, wrote "Témoins" (1929), a work which gave rise to a lively controversy over the historical value of "war testimony".
