5 May 2020

Library services updates - ‘phase two’ about to begin 

by the University Library System
 
At this challenging time, the University Library System remains committed to supporting study, research and teaching. 

Starting from 18 May 2020, the following library services will be safely available to all university users (lecturers, researchers, PhD students, scholarship and research grant holders, students working on their dissertation): 
•    borrowing books: users will be able to access the library’s premises only after having ordered their book online, and upon confirmation of book availability by the library. Health and safety measures must always be complied with; 
•    returning books: this can only be done by using the self-service boxes outside; 
•    inter-library loans service (this service allows users to request books from other national and international libraries): this service will be available subject to availability from the external libraries in question. 

Moreover: 
•    girarticolo: without needing to go to the library in person, it will be possible for users to request and receive through Universe articles or sections of books owned by the University's libraries, in compliance with copyright regulations; 
•    giralibro: by logging into Universe, university users will be able to order a book online that is part of the collection of the University’s libraries, and collect it at a library of their choice. 

Please note that during ‘Phase two’, all the online library services will remain available to online users - for further information: FAQ - #lamiabibliotecadacasa.  
Among the online resources available, are a list of ebooks and electronic articles specifically for students - i.e. in line with the topics covered in their own programmes - and a series of video tutorials to help them in their book search. 
Study rooms will remain closed to the public. 

We will keep you updated on any developments via our social media channels, the web pages and the social media channels of the University Library System, and through the FAQ - #lamiabibliotecadacasa section.
