The collections of the Ensa Nantes library, under the responsibility of Anne de Chanterac, consist of more than 22,000 books and 3,600 documents of "grey literature" (reports, surveys, the latter). In addition, some 3,000 theses of Ensa Nantes students offer an original and unique resource for research. About 100 French and foreign magazines are also available for on-site consultation and from the digital catalogue (www.biblio.nantes.archi.fr). The analysis of articles in most of these journals is made available to readers.
Students of the Bachelor and Masters of Architecture and Urbanism in Mauritius have access to the 324 reference books on site, including the essential bibliographical elements for the early years of architecture studies. Each year, about 100 new references are added to this group of books in a common resource centre accessible to all campus institutions. Loan terms apply as detailed in the internal regulation.
