How to request an item from another library

1. Check SISSA Library collections first - it's likely we have it!

  • search SISSA catalog ( for printed books and journals, DVD, CD-ROM, printed SISSA theses, and for e-books)
  • search SISSA Discovery Service (for full-text access to articles, reports, preprints, e-books across hundreds of licensed, open access databases and articles not accessible). If you want to search with this tool in SISSA digital collection Limit the search to SISSA Catalog or SISSA repositories (IRIS-SISSA Digital Library and SISSA Preprint Archive). It's usually quicker to request these articles using the "SISSA Library DD" form selecting  NOT in SISSA collection - ask for articles/books directly from the the list of articles you are looking for. It will give you an option to go directly to this service.and the system (SISSA Discovery Service) will copy and paste the basic citation information automatically into the form (but please add any additional information you have about the item into the form).
  • search UNITYFVG: United Universities of Friuli Venezia Giulia database (federated institutional research digital archives of the University of Trieste, University of Udine and SISSA)
