The Digital Library of the University makes available to its teachers and students, for consultation, the book series of the greatest publishing houses and the main databases available for scholars and researchers.


MLOL is the first Italian network of public libraries, librarian networks and other authorities which cooperate and share the costs for the management of digital resources: today the network is formalized by a national agreement with a leading system named by the other participant authorities (today the leading system is the Consorzio Sistema Bibliotecario Nord-Ovest di Milano, CSBNO) which manages exclusively digital-content book series. MLOL is also the Italian platform for digital lending in Italian libraries. The access to the library is allowed via the Internet, 24/7, in order to allow on-line consultation of e-books, music, films, audio-books, newspapers and magazines, databases and e-learning objects to students, teachers and researchers.
To access the contents it's necessary to click on the “Enter” button and insert your Username and Password (identical to the log-in information to access the University portal).


The use of bibliometric indicators for the evaluation of the scientific production is made possible thanks to the availability of databases like the one managed by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) of Philadelphia, in which over 8,000 widespread scientific journals are included (mainly in English). These journals use a system of “referees” (independent external appraisers) for the selection of the articles to publish. This selection modality allows to satisfy strict criteria of scientific quality, keeping the available space -which in the most important and prestigious journals is always limited and particularly sought after- for the best among the published works, whose number is proportional to the renown of the journal in question.


Scopus is a database of summaries and quotes for articles of publications regarding research, which allows to calculate different IFs. The database was created in 2004 by Elsevier publishing house. Scopus is periodically updated and offers about 18,000 articles from more than 5,000 international publishers including: - 16,500 newspapers submitted to a peer reviewing process in the scientific, technical, medical and social fields; - 600 commercial publications; - 350 book editions; - an extended coverage of worldwide conferences with 3,500,000 conference papers. The portal allows also the direct visualization of abstracts and complete sought articles, as well as the setting of alerts in order to be kept up-to-date about a specific subject or the publications of a given author.


It's a complete and user-adjustable on-line system of legal information by Giuffré Editore, which allows an intelligent and focused research, supporting the scholar step by step in the rapid and accurate selection of the information which is relevant to the development of the research subject. The service is available only from the appointed terminals at the Central Campus Library in Novedrate.


In order to propose the insertion of a new database in this section it is sufficient to send a request by e-mail to:

PROXY service conditions of use

Proxy service allows the access to electronic resources, reserved to eCampus on-line University authorized users only (students, researchers, teachers, staff, associates, visitors, etc.). The access to such resources is regulated by contracts (or licences) that bind the University to monitor actively the respect of the permitted uses and to identify potential violations. The University will not be responsible on behalf of the user for the possible violations of the copyright, or of the conditions of use listed in the licences, perpetrated by subjects who are allowed to access the materials through the service. The University, in order to protect the general right to access through the Proxy, reserves the right to deny access, as a precautionary measure, to the user whose legitimate use is contested by the providers of electronic resources, by giving notice to the user him/herself. The activation of the Proxy service for the ubiquitously access to the activated resources implies the strict observance of the following rules.
a) Do not violate the purpose of the Proxy service.
The purpose of the Proxy service is to give informative and documentary support to the research, to the teaching and to the collaborative on-line activities within the University. The consultation of reserved resources must be relevant for this purpose. Therefore:
  • do not interfere with somebody else's activity or with the functioning of the system, that is, it is necessary:
    • not to allow anybody to use your account;
    • not to replace somebody else when using systems;
    • not to try to capture somebody else's password, nor to crack passwords or coded communications;
    • not to destroy or alter somebody else's data;
  • not to try to limit or deny the access to the system to legitimate users;
  • not to use the access to confidential resources for profit-making business.
b) Do not allow anybody to know your password.
It is obvious that your own user-id is known (name.surname: by this name you are known in the Internet community), but you must never let anybody have your access password. Nobody should know the password; close friends, computer technicians and system administrators included. If somebody makes a bad use of it, you are directly responsible. There is no reason to give your password to others: every student of the University, every teacher/researcher/collaborator of the University or Visiting Professor can get a personal account.
c) Do not violate other users' privacy.
All users of the service must pay attention, coherently with the above-mentioned rule, not to violate other users' privacy, even unintentionally.
d) Do not copy and do not make an unlawful use of copyrighted material (including software).
The access to non-free and non-open access electronic journals, bibliographic and factual databases is usually governed by a contract or licence which determines who are the entitled users and which are the permitted uses. By signing these contracts, the University is committed -like other Universities or Research Institutes- to publicize the permitted uses and to respect the clauses of the contract. Therefore, any commercial use or a use for purposes not related to the research and the teaching of such materials, is strictly forbidden.
