Users can photocopy the documents in the Library, with the exception of dissertations, in compliance with the Italian Copyright Law.


The Library has outsourced this service: users will find 4 self-service photocopiers to reproduce the documents in the Library.

The photocopiers are on both floors: two on the first floor in the photocopying room, and two on the second floor. They work with a pre-paid card (which may also be used for printing in the ICT Room): cards are on sale from the vending machine in the first-floor photocopying room. They cost € 5 or € 10: a € 5 card does 94 A4 black-and-white photocopies.

You are not allowed to photocopy dissertations; these are available for consultation only.

Italian Copyright Law

According to the Italian copyright law, you may photocopy up to 15% of each volume or journal issue for your own use, with the exception of advertising pages and music scores on which there is an explicit ban.

The 15% limit does not apply to rare intellectual works or those outside the publishing catalogues, given the difficulty of finding them on the market.
