Resource centre

Groupe URD’s Resource Centre, which specialises in humanitarian action, has more than 3000 books and 5000 reports, studies and papers mainly in French, English and Spanish. It also has pedagogical tools (video, CD ROMs, DVDs, etc.), periodicals and information bulletins. These resources cover a large number of countries, a wide range of aid-related topics (urbanism, nutrition, IHL, the environment, health, etc.) and more general issues (geopolitics, sociology, politics, personal development, etc.).

Since 2003, the Resource Centre has been a member of the Ritimo network1, whose centralised database allows all our bibliographic references to be visualized online.

It is possible to use the Resource Centre which is located at our headquarters. Our documentalist can provide personalized help in searching for documents. Remote searches can also be carried out. The Resource Centre is open to the general public, but loans are restricted to members of Groupe URD or the Ritimo network.

To help you search for a document or for more information, contact Cécile Le Grix.

Open every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, from 10am to 5pm
