Section Two LIBRARY SERVICES
Library Services – SECTION TWO Searching for Information – Research tools The library holds an important collection of printed material (books, printed journals) as well as many electronic resources (e-journals, databases), providing several tools for your study/research activities. Next slides will explain how to get a document through the library resources.

Library Services – SECTION TWO Searching for Information – Research tools On the right-hand side of the results list there is a field (Loc. /Holding) that indicates the location of the book. Each printed book/journal/document has a code consisting of a capital letter followed by a number. The letter indicates the knowledge area (collection) and the number the position (e. g. A-2293). A – Agriculture E – Economy D – Law F – Political Science I – Engineering M – Medicine L – Literature P. K. – Peace Keeping S – History V - Interdisciplinary Knowledge area codes Book location code

Library Services – SECTION TWO Borrowing material – Loans Online management of your loans You can manage your loans online from the library’s catolog, e. g. for renewals, reservations, requests, etc. You can learn below how to use the catalog (OPAC) facilities for the most common functions regarding loans: To use the online services first you need to sign in the OPAC. Remember that you have to do this before changing the language. To sign in from the Italian version select Identificati and enter your library card number twice. You will be asked to change the password after the first time.
Library Services – SECTION TWO Borrowing material – Loans 1. How do I know if the book I found is available? 2. Once you have found a book in the OPAC, if you look in the column “Bib/Items” you will see two numbers in brackets (x/y). The first number indicates the number of copies held in the library, the second indicates the number of copies currently on loan. 3. Example: 4. 5. In the second case, (2/1) means that there are 2 copies of the book and only 1 is on loan.
Library Services – SECTION TWO Borrowing material – Loans For more detailed information about book availability, click on the numbers in brackets or on the location code. When a date appears in the column named Due Date, it means that the item is currently on loan, otherwise On shelf will appear. If there are several copies of the same book, as in this example, you will see the availability of each copy. Under Item Status column you can see if the book can be borrowed or not (Loan / Not on loan).
Library Services – SECTION TWO Borrowing material – Loans 2. How do I reserve an item? If the item you’ve interested in is currently on loan, from the Holdings frame click on the underlined Request link to place a hold request. If other requests have been posted, they will appear under the column No. of requests. When you click on the Request link you’ll be directed to a form to complete and submit. You will be e-mailed when the item is available. You have three days from receiving this e-mail to collect the book from the loan desk.
Library Services – SECTION TWO Borrowing material – Loans 3. How do I renew an item? If you have borrowed a book and the loan is about to expire, you may extend the loan period. You can do this easily from the OPAC by cliking on My library card at the top of the frame, once you’ve singed in. This will access your personal information page. In the Loans list select the item to be renewed by cliking on the underlined number in the No. column.
