The documentary fund of the André Alciat Library is specialised in law.

The André Alciat Library is part of a network with the city libraries of Bourges (multimedia library, Quatre-Piliers specialised library, additional libraries of Gibjoncs and Val d'Auron, and the libraries of the museums of Bourges). Its catalogue is dematerialised and consultable from all parts of the network. It is possible to give back to the Alicat library documents that were borrowed in these other libraries, and to give back in these libraries documents that were borrowed in the Alciat library. The library is also working is close partnership with the University Libraries of Orléans.
As a branch of the Orléans University Library of Law, which gives it precious support, and as a true tool at the service of law students and other students who might need legal elements at some point in their cursus, the library plays a crucial part in the success of a legal practitioner’s studies. At the beginning of the university year, the emphasis is put on the importance of documentary research and a careful educational help is given to each new student.
