  • Library (apparently) well organized, spacious, comfortable. I had to carry out a search on old newspapers and I was upset about the long time (compared to other libraries frequented) between the demand of the material and its delivery (2 hour minimum) and above all for the cost of reproduction: 1.95 € per article (other libraries 30 cents) and € 1 for scans (0.05 € elsewhere). Also the material does not come immediately, but mailed a week later. MAH ...

  • Good organization, adequate space, registration required the previous day to pick up the book, you will be given a personal Smart card. Once registered you can book online the book that will be delivered when they sign in the library. WiFi Free in the library, ample parking for those arriving by car. Large opening. The library is located across from the Castro Pretorio Metro station.

  • Well stocked. Pity that some staff would be better off to sell the fish at the market, having regard to the total disregard of the silence that in such a place ought to be sacred. And so, next to serious and disciplined workers, see guys that instead of working, with a front row of people waiting to receive texts, are blissfully to your mobile phone, or employees who cross the reading rooms screaming to the mobile or complaining loudly with other colleagues. Incredible disrespect of certain individuals!

  • The library staff is very kind and helpful. I got my card in few minutes. It's free. The reading rooms are big and comfortable.
  • Good library not the most modern, but the WiFi is great. Good place to study for long periods. You have to be a resident of Rome to enter for free (make sure to bring proof).
  • Great place
  • The library, although very equipped, is a disaster. If not forced wouldn't ever. Yes, the building is new and overall well equipped considering the position, and Yes, it is definitely rich in material not found elsewhere. However, there are many flaws that make it an unpleasant experience, starting from the parking lot. That hours are counted at random, stealing 45 minutes here and there: today I found no reason to pay an extra hour. The reception is bad, the library is a riot of angry people that can't wait to rush the victim to turn to let off steam. I will not dwell on the age of the staff, mostly caryatides, which, with the exception of a few, is composed by incompetents and grumpy. In all honesty, you go for the books, but if it means being treated badly for no reason it's still worthwhile. Moving on to books, even though I had called a day earlier to get all the information and avoiding me unexpected things have turned out differently and I was unable to get the one book that I needed really. The information, if given, are provided in a hasty and superficial. The service is slow, you have to wait an hour for a book and two days to pick up copies. The staff is scarce, what is there leaves much to be desired and, as if that were not enough, the operating system is anything but clear and simple to use and no one is willing to give explanations. The two stars are only for books and the only two people there informed that you are so at least friendly. Customer service, the great unknown.

  • You have to take advantage of qualified staff, room attendants who don't shout, but they give the example that in a national library, not spoken aloud. You have to use staff who speak Italian, not romanesco, of people who have an idea of what it means to be professional at least minimum.
