Library Services

UNINT has a private university library, open to academic staff, students, and technical and administrative staff of the University, but may also be opened to external users on application. The library was established at the same time as the University, and has developed its own bibliographic resources in accordance with UNINT educational programmes and academic research. This explains the library’s more than adequate response to the information needs of its users, in providing a unique corpus of translating and interpreting studies in Rome, and acting as reference point for national and international academics. Through its participation in the National Library Service with the Polo/IEI-Cultural Institutes in Rome and the Archivio Collettivo Nazionale dei Periodici (ACNP), together with the interlibrary loan service, the University is able to promote and share its collection, making it available to external users.
