Vision, mission, values and team

Our mission 🚀

Nous contribuons à l’ouverture et au partage de la connaissance scientifique, au service de la mission et des priorités de l’EPFL.

Nous apportons aux communautés estudiantine, enseignante et de recherche de l’EPFL, soutien, conseil et expertise en matière d’information scientifique.

Nous nous engageons à faciliter la création, la diffusion, la valorisation et la conservation de la production académique et scientifique de l’EPFL.

En réponse aux besoins de nos publics, nous développons des collections pertinentes, offrons des services et formations de haut niveau et proposons des espaces d’étude et de collaboration, stimulants et inclusifs.

Portés par l’objectif d’excellence de l’Ecole, nous nous mobilisons, aux côtés de nos partenaires EPFL, pour favoriser la réussite académique, l’avancée de la recherche et la science ouverte.
