Documentation Methodology: Educating Students of the 2nd and 3rd Cycles at Paris IV

The Service commun de la documentation (SCD) at Paris IV participates in the teaching of documentation methodology aimed at third year under-graduate and post-graduate students. The inclusion of teachers constitutes a determining factor. The participation of the SCD can take diverse forms, the duration and the contents of such courses can vary from one faculty to another. Two conditions are systematically met: the integration of this documentary wing in disciplinary or methodological university teaching, and its adaptation to the specifics of each discipline. The objective is to educate students in the research and exploitation of information, in a manner sufficiently operational for them to draw and profit from such courses in the preparation of their Master's thesis or diplôme d'études approfondies.
