Partnership in the University of Toulouse I : Towards a New Organizational Model

Far from driving towards a model of uniform organization, and coincident with the affirmation of the autonomy of universities, the decree of 1985 concerning the common documentation services has given rise to a variety of organizations, adapted to the characteristics and needs of each university. At the University of Social Sciences at Toulouse 1, the conjunction between the timing of the extension of computerization into a network and the creation of a new university library has given a durable, dynamic impulse to the structuring and coherence of documentation policy, acclaimed as a major element in the strategic plans of the university.
