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: LUISSearch, LUISSThesis and Digital Library.
All of the Library's collections, both physical and digital, are searchable through Summon. Summon can also be reached from off campus.
Once you have found the book you are looking for, note its location and take if from the open shelves. If you would like to borrow the book, ask a librarian or use one of the self-check stations.
You can consult the catalog of periodicals, where you will find information regarding the location, ownership and online access, if available.
If you are an institutional user, you simply have to show your Luiss card. If you don’t have it, you must show a valid identity card.
Luiss alumni may access the Library and its services by obtaining an annual membership. For more information call 06.8522.5600.
There is no consultation limit for volumes on open shelves. Regarding loans, Luiss students, professors and Ph.D. candidates may borrow 10 books for 40 days; participants in special courses, external library members or members of the Luiss Alumni Association may borrow three books for 30 days.
