La place des sciences occultes et de la parapsychologie dans les bibliothèques : problèmes déontologiques et bibliothéconomiques

Abstract : Publications of occult sciences and parapsychology give particular problems in libraries. What are the deontological positions that librarians have to adopt concerning works for which references miss and whose seriousness is sometimes contestable? Censoring is tempting but contradicts the encyclopaedic mission. Esoteric works also raise practical questions in terms of biblioeconomy: the limits of the domain are not always defined and their definition requires specific tools. The choices to be made for the classification and the indexing are characteristic of this type of literature. These questions are crucial as esotericism federates a wide and knowledgeable audience, and the libraries have to answer them.
