  • The oldest universities in Nancy included several academic libraries, housing 500,000 documents and 250,000 books spread over 36 sites. The first stone of the library of the former Nancy-II was laid by President Albert Lebrun in 1932.
  • Six libraries including three in Metz, Thionville-Yutz, Sarreguemines and Saint-Avold were attached to the University of Metz, housing approximately 280,000 books, 880 periodicals and 26,650 online journals.


The original University of Nancy was founded in 1572 in the nearby city of Pont-à-Mousson by Charles III, duke of Lorraine, and Charles, Cardinal of Lorraine, and transferred to Nancy in 1768. It was closed by the revolutionaries in 1793, and reopened in 1864.
