The LibraryCADIST in astronomy and astrophysics
As at the Observatoire de Paris, its library is attached to a rich history with a view to the future.
It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful astronomical-astrophysical libraries in the world with a service entirely devoted to research. Its two missions are to furnish scientists with the most complete and pertinent documentation, and to enrich a 350 year old heritage, while at the same time thinking about what today’s heritage will be, and what the future will bring.
Although mainly destined for the scientists of the Observatoire, it is nevertheless also open to others: scientists from different disciplines and all countries, students, school children, the general public, who are welcome and for whom it organizes scientific and technical outreach activities.
