The Library of the Institut Scientifique is certainly the oldest scientific library in Morocco, since it was created in parallel with the Institute in 1921.
It comprises a unit with historical (since 1866) and multidisciplinary volumes, the Central Library, as well as 6 speciality wings in Geology, Geophysics, Geomorphology, Remote sensing, Botany and Zoology (see photo gallery).
The documentary fund comprises:
– 16 000 books and maps;
– 2 100 titles of periodicals.
At present, the Institute receives more than 250 titles periodicals, most of which through exchange agreements (see list of acquisitions in 2007). These journals are sent from more than 170 institutions located in 36 countries around the world. Numerous books are bought, or received as gifts or exchanges.
