Are there any spaces left in the university libraries (BU)? An app that tells you everything you need to know

On The December 13, 2016

The "Open libraries +" scheme, which was created for the site by the Université de Lyon, aims to improve students' visits to libraries in Lyon Saint-Étienne by extending opening hours and informing users about the occupancy rates of the site's 12 libraries in real-time.

Would you like to know if there are any spaces left in the libraries? Thanks to the Affluences app, you can now do just that:

The Affluences app is free, available for Android and iPhone, and enables you to do the following in real-time:
  • See if there are any spaces available in your library and the surrounding libraries;
  • View the predicted occupancy rates for the rest of the day, so you can plan your visit for the best time and know that you will definitely be able to find a space;
  • View the opening hours.
