The Library has opted for an open-shelf system, which enables users to find their way among the library's holdings without assistance.
The Library also has closed stacks (with books and journals) on floor -I.

|Shelving Criteria for Books and Journals|
Journals in open shelves are subdivided between current and past an arranged in alphabetical order.
If a journal is kept in open shelves, the “Fondo” column in the OPAC will say “Sala periodici"; if it is kept in the stacks, it will say “Magazzino [Piano -1]".
CeDRA journals are on the shelf on the right to the entrance.
Books are all arranged by subject according to Dewey's Decimal Classification, the most used classification system in the world.
To consult or borrow books in closed stacks, please write down the shelfmark and ask library staff.
Autonomous works on CD-ROM and DVD (recognizable by the expression [risorsa elettronica] which follows the title in the OPAC) are kept in special covers with a magnetic lock and shelved with books.
For further information you can ask the library staff, especially the aide students, who can be recognised by their name badge.
