Bibliographic search

The library staff are available to help users choose and use the most suitable bibliographical resources for their needs.

Catalogue searches

Librarians on duty at the Information Desk will help you search for books and journals in the catalogues of the Ruffilli Library, the Bologna and Romagna library networks and the Italian Catalogue of Serials.

There is a reserved area of the catalogues of the Ruffilli Library and of Bologna Library Network where you may view your searches and saved bibliographies.

Bibliographic search

To consult other catalogues of Italian and foreign libraries, databases and university e-journals, you must use the computer in the ICT Room.

For assistance with bibliographical search, you are advised to make an appointment with a reference librarian, specifying the purpose and the subject of your search:

Printing and downloading facilities

The ICT Room computers are connected to a printer working with a pre-paid card (the same used for photocopying), 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.
Search results may also be saved on the user’s own USB pen-drive.
