Jacques Hadamard Library, Joint Service Unit n° 1786
Research units, service units or parts thereof can form a Service Network (GDS), in order to group part, or the whole, of their resources to achieve a common goal. The members of a Service Network preserve their own individuality.
The 920520SOSI decision of July 24, 1992 (amended) on the organization and functioning of operational research structures, provides some interesting details on the UMS.
The Jacques Hadamard Library (UMS 1786) : as a research library, it is for the use of mathematicians from the University Paris-Sud 11, I.H.E.S and also of some partners (Ecole Polytechnique for example).
Together with the science section of Paris-Sud university library, it acts as a CADIST (Centre d’Acquisition et de Diffusion de l’Information Scientifique et Technique) for Mathematics. This is the main reason of the library for obtaining the status of UMS.
