Learning services and facilities
The literary resources of the University of Parma are kept in the many libraries. The implementation of web information services, including bibliographic data and electronic magazines, has significantly increased the range and quality of the services offered by the University Libraries, that offer literary resources up to around 1,000,000 books and 8,000 magazine subscriptions.
All these resources are available to visitors, especially students, researchers, professors and lecturers, as well as to the University staff, and also to other people with particular research and study needs. The University Librarians will help all visitors, providing specialized bibliographic information and helping with specific research in various disciplines.
All the libraries and structures coordinating the library activities and dealing with buying books and magazines are part of our University library system. The library department is responsible for all activities pertaining to libraries and the related services, and it coordinates the general aspects of library financing and takes care of the structures management.
Appost@perte (Students' individual e-mail)
The 'Appost@perte' e-mail service was established by the University of Parma to be used by any registered student: each of them is supplied with an e-mail address which, except coincidence of names among the students, will be written as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each mailbox is free and has a 10 MB capacity. This service can be used to communicate directly with the University in order to ask for information on a student's career, the attended courses, etc. The University also uses e-mail to send notices in real time.
