Access to the library services

CHOOSE YOUR SEAT

If you wish to choose a specific seat or a seat sector of the library, it is possible to consult the following map which shows you all BEM's numbered seats.

We remind you that seats are distributed as follows:

  • seats from 1 to 217 -> dedicated to UNITO users and those ones coming from affiliated universities
  • places from EXT 1 to EXT 10 -> dedicated to external users
  • seats from WS 1 to WS 19 -> PC stations (station 12 out of service)
  • WS DATASTREAM workstation -> PC workstation dedicated to consulting the EIKON / DATASTREAM database
  • WS station ENGLISH LANGUAGE -> PC station dedicated to the consultation of bibliographic resources for the English language exam

Seats highlighted in GREEN on the map have an electric power supply nearby. It is recommended to use these seats if you have to connect devices to the electrical network in order not to create safety problems with cables laid between the tables.
