The University of Bergamo Library Services supply back-up for all teaching activities, for study and research, making its resources and assistance available to satisfy the information needs of all its users.
Each Faculty (now Department) has its own library, organised to satisfy the primary study and research needs of its students.
Reading rooms offer quiet, comfortable study conditions, books and journals are mostly freely available on open shelving for immediate use, and can also be taken out on loan or photocopied. Numerous connection points for students' own lap-top computers allow on-line access to further resources.
The University's Libraries contain in total: around 200,000 books, 1,200 current subscriptions to journals, collections of working papers, data-bases (on bibliography, law, statistics, business, literature, periodicals), and thousands of titles of on-line journals of the principal international scientific publishers. The documents available within the libraries or accessible on-line are supplemented by all that can be found through the document supply and inter-library loan services.
Continuously updated information regarding new acquisitions, special collections, data-bases and on-line publications, and inter-library activities can be found at Website www.unibg.it/library
