Enssib provides initial statutory trainings for civil servants destined for scientific and supervisory functions in libraries ; a lifelong training program in information science and libraries, on site and remotely ; three tracks of Masters programs (Information and Library Sciences ; History, civilizations, heritage ; Digital Humanities). It also provides two diplomas, all carried out remotely.
