APDEN international memberships

Dear colleagues,

APDEN – the national association of French professeurs documentalistes – is pleased to inform you that it is now possible for teachers in charge of a school library abroad to subscribe to our organization.

The organization which was founded in 1972 and which is open to teachers in secondary schools as well as higher education is a place of reflection concerning our practice and also about the future of the profession.


Every third year, a congress of professeurs documentalistes is organised. The last one was held in Grenoble in october 2019 on the subject: “Publishing on the web. A pedagogical and didactical tool for teacher librarians.”


Twice a year, APDEN also publishes the professional journal MEDIADOC  which is devoted to the important issues that underline our profession. The aim is to publicize the professeurs documentalistes working/teaching practises as well as scientific research (researchers, teacher training, doctors thesis) that feed the fields of education  and the information and communication sciences.

Each issue is centered on a theme that is built according to the current problems that cross the professional culture of the professeurs documentalistes. Various contributions and also texts concerning the international context are welcome within the pages


The subscription includes participating in the mailing lists as well as the two  Mediadoc issues for a year.
