Visiting the BNU
The historic building at 6 Place de la République is currently closed to visitors while extensive renovation work is carried out. It is scheduled to re-open in the first half of 2014.
Meanwhile, groups may visit the library's stacks at 5 Rue du Maréchal Joffre and 9 Rue Fischart.
Certain collections (posters, papyruses, manuscripts, etc) may also be presented on request, and groups working on a particular documentary project may request a specific visit.
A presentation of the architectural project, its scope and the state of progress may also be requested.
Visits generally last about an hour.
