How do I find…a book

Consult Summon

Summon is a discovery system that allows you to do a single integrated search of the majority of bibliographical and full text resources available in the LUISS Library and of other relevant, open source resources, as well as of the following institutional archives: LUISSearchLUISSThesis and Digital library.

Consult the library catalog

You can search by title, author or keyword; for other searching strategies consult the catalog guide (in Italian). Remember that the catalog contains books and monographic component parts (single essays inside books).

Consult other catalogs

If the book you are looking for is not in our library, you can consult other national   catalogs, such as SBN or MAI. If the book is available in Rome, you can go directly to that library. Otherwise, you can order it through the interlibrary loan service.

Check a book’s commercial availability

If your book is not available in any library, go to Global Books in print (a database directly accessible through the LUISS network or remotely by proxy) and verify that the book has actually been published and that the bibliographic information you have (title, author) is correct.

How do I find…a periodical

Consult the search engine for periodicals

This search engine provides a complete list of printed and online periodicals available in the library.

The following information is provided for printed periodicals: the title of the periodical, language, access number for the reading room (this year’s periodicals), access number for archived periodicals (periodicals from previous years), current printed periodicals in the Library and missing items.

The following information is provided for online periodicals: the title, with a direct link to the online resource, the abstract and/or full text, the language, the resource’s database and access terms and conditions.

Consult other catalogs

If the periodical you are looking for is not in our library, you can consult other national catalogs, such as ACNP OR SBN: if it is available in Rome, you can go directly to the library that has it. Otherwise, you can ask for a copy of the article you are interested in through the document delivery service.
