A collection for recreational, scientific knowledge and cultural openness is also available.

The library, located at the heart of the School, offers spaces designed for work, reading and relaxation.

Daily support to users is provided by professionals, whether it is a one-off information, a tutored help for an information search, the use of a database, etc.

The librarians also work with students in cycles L, M and D to develop the informational skills identified in their respective curricula.

Being part of the Université de Toulouse documentary network provides IMT Mines Albi users with access to all 52 libraries and to a new generation catalogue allowing to access up to specific articles or chapters of the electronic offer.

In line with the proactive policy of free access to scientific publications established at national (National Open Science Plan) and European (Plan S) levels, IMT Mines Albi strongly enjoins its authors to post their publications online within its institutional portal HAL IMT Mines Albi.

The library ensures the maintenance of this portal, the training and support of authors, advice on rights and on the management of their digital identity. For this activity, the library has the support of an IST representative in each research centre.

The bibliometric indicators required to manage the research are generated by the library.
