La Rochelle : a three-year old university

This paper is the story of the early stages of the library of the new University of La Rochelle, without initial means, but with a great number of students, as soon as the first academic year started, and for which all the hopes are still permitted, while the negotiation of the first quadriennal contract between the state and the university is taking place. The setting up of emergency services, the preparation of the future building, and the basis of the documentary system of the university are described.
