Here, you will find the reading room, equipped with fifty-four tables for study and research, and the media library, with eighteen study tables, a journal collection, and eight computers with access to servers, internet services and the printer. You will find the library staff in the reference area.
The staff is composed of the Director, Prof. Sergio Rondinara, and the librarian, Ms Laura Signore. The reference service is available every day from 9 am to 1.30 pm for Sophia students and residents of the surrounding area.
The open-shelf library was inaugurated on 1st December 2008, and its collection has grown over the years through acquisitions and donations. It currently comprises approximately 20,000 volumes, the majority of which are catalogued and available for consultation on the Italian National Libraries Service (SBN). Since its early days, the library has developed its very own book classification and arrangement system in order to reflect the Institute’s characteristic nature, experience and approach to knowledge.
