Dossetti Library

The Giuseppe Dossetti Library, constantly enriched by new acquisitions, has become over the decades an essential point of reference for those who wish to deepen their knowledge of historical-religious sciences. 

In the library, scholars have at their disposal a patrimony of books that embraces the entire panorama of religious sciences, from the historical, exegetical and theological point of view. Over 300,000 volumes in the library’s possession are arranged on 5,323 meters of shelves, occupying an area of 2,100 square meters; an equally large area is dedicated to a newspaper and periodicals library that has 2,565 journals, either printed or in electronic format, which occupies 900 square meters, with 2,759 meters of compact shelves. The patrimony of the libraries of books and of newspapers and journals is included in the SBN and ACNP cataloguing and research systems.
