Access to the library

ultima modifica 03/03/2016 13:49

Welcome to the Medical Library “Vincenzo Pinali”

Institutional users have free access to the library.

Erasmus and other exchange students enjoy the same rights as Italian students.

External users are asked to apply for a Library Card.

The library has 101 places for study and consultation and 25 PC workstations.

For safety reasons the access to the library is regulated by a radio-frequency system: the first time that you enter the library you need to register at the reception desk.
Institutional users use their university personal badge. The staff of the Azienda Ospedaliera will be provided with a library badge after registering at the reception desk.

External users receive a badge after filling out the specific form to allow the recording of their personal data both in the Library and Library System University database. For more information on services and costs see "Card for external users."

The library provides also three courtesy-tags reserved for users who occasionally need the library services. These tags do not grant access to computer workstations.

At the entrance of the library a pc screen shows the number of vacancies. You have to choose your own seat on the library map as shown on the pc screen, the seat will be registered in your name; you can change seat just setting your earlier seat free on the screen and choosing another one.

You can take a break and leave the library for 30 minutes without losing registration of your seat; after 30 minutes the seat will be available for another user. Any objects on the table, on shelves or on the floor will be removed and taken to the reception desk.

To store your own belongings you can use the lockers available at the entrance.
