Abstract : Actually, a double process gets the university education. The first one concerns the empowerment of universities (Laws relative to the Responsibilities of Universities, LRU). The second shows itself by the dominion of one complex informative paradigm, too often reduce under the notion of "Information society" or confused with "Internet". However, the specifically scriptural requirements of the system of validation of teachings Educations, distributed show themselves essentially through épistémiques, ethical and methodological frames of the disciplinary fields. How could we envisage the impact of this double movement on the capacities of the students to dead new educational and informative imperatives ? We wish to bring some elements of answer by analyzing the documentary practices of historian students, considered in the whole of the general intellectual practices, registered in a particular épistémique, methodological and ethical environment .
