ENSAIT’s Library is unlike any other 

Built in 1881, the library is listed in the French supplementary registry of historical monuments. This exceptional building offers its readers a glimpse of a rare form of architecture.


Access to ten computer stations is available for literature searches (textiles databases, engineering technology, Kompass, etc...) 


Library resources are specifically science and textile orientated for engineers.


The library database can be accessed via the web 


A wealth of documentary resources at ENSAIT includes a wide range of publications and electronic resources, articles, final year dissertations, student engineering projects, theses and Masters of Research Degree research materials and internship reports. 

You may also access periodicals (primarily specialised press publications) and encyclopaedias (notably the Encyclopaedia of Polymer Science and Technology).

Important ancient archives, detailing a wide variety of subjects, are also in the process of being catalogued. 


These specialised resources are available for professionals across different departments who may come on-site simply to consult specialised research information through our literature search service (costs depend on requirements). 


ENSAIT staff and engineering students: if you wish to borrow resources, a simple library registration is required after paying a 30 euro deposit and providing your bank details. This deposit will be returned to you, subject to conditions. Registration enables you to borrow a maximum of 3 items for a period of 3 weeks.
