All electronic resources are accessible within the University Network either by institutional users (professors, students, technical-administrative staff) or by external users temporarily admitted to Library services. In the various reading rooms, there are 9 PC workstations available.
According to the specific licenses of use, remote access is possible only for some resources, through the institutional credentials provided by the Registrar's Office; external users who have an annual card can request the credentials by contacting the Electronic Resources Section.
All Library electronic resources are catalogued and accessible directly through the Catalogue. The Library offers numerous resources on CD-ROM, DVD, pen-drive, e-books, electronic periodicals and databases, either bibliographic (which provide bibliographical references to other documents) or full texts (that allow direct access to the document contents).
All electronic resources acquired and catalogued by the Library, along with a selection of open access resources considered to be particularly relevant, are also accessible through the DigiPoint platform, sorted by type and searchable by title, year, author/curator, classification and publisher.
The catalogue includes electronic periodicals acquired by the Library, but the access to the entire collection, including titles available through databases, along with a selection of open access publications, is made through the Full Text Finder virtual catalogue, where one can search for periodicals by title, ISSN or subject. For each one it is specified the source that hosts the contents (database, platform or other) with a direct link to articles in full text.
