STUDYING AT THE LIBRARY
The IMT Library is an academic library in which most of the spaces and services available are offered to both external users and institutional users (professors, students and researchers affiliated with the IMT School).
The Reading Room on the ground floor is in fact open to anyone who needs to consult, study, read or take advantage of our services. Anyone is welcome in the IMT School Library.
Two fixed PC workstations are available to users, from which it is possible to consult the library catalog, our databases and electronic resources under subscription (find out more).
In order to use them, you must request that library staff activate you session and register in the appropriate register. The session lasts an hour and each user has two daily sessions at their disposal.
THE NEWSPAPERS CORNER AND THE CONSERVATORY
On the bulletin boards on the ground floor you will find the latest library news, our reading recommendations, as well as newspapers and magazines to which we subscribe, available to users.
In the Conservatory (located in the former apse of the Church), library users can chat and eat. Here you will also find the restrooms, vending machines for snacks and hot drinks.
WIFI AND THE EDUROAM SERVICE
When you subscribe to the library external users may request the release of their personal credentials to access the IMTLib WIFI service. The release of credentials takes place within 24 hours and allows users to connect to the network via their own devices.
The IMT School also subscribes to the Eduroam - EDUcation ROAMing service, which provides researchers, teachers and students enrolled in another university, network access at institutions other than their own, using their institutional credentials. (add e.g. template)
The IMTLib WIFI network and Eduroam connection services are provided free of charge.
Institutional users will receive their credentials directly from the IT Office at the beginning of their relationship with the School.
The lockers available in the library can be used to temporarily store – and always no later than the library closing time – small personal items. The key must be requested at the reception desk, showing an identification document.
