Questions & Answers

I am not a member of the Institut Pasteur but I would like to borrow an item. Is that possible?

No, you will have to consult any library resources on site. Loans are only available for Institut Pasteur members and students taking courses lasting more than three weeks.

I would like to come with some other students taking Institut Pasteur courses to work together as a group in the library. Is that possible?

The library reading room is open from 10am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. But the reading room is a quiet workspace. We would suggest that you ask at the library front desk to see whether you can use the adjacent meeting room.
