The University Library System Card is intended for University staff and for external or affiliated library users.
The Card is used to borrow books from all the libraries of the University of Florence, as well as to access the Library of Social Sciences in Novoli and the Humanities Library in Piazza Brunelleschi, which are equipped with an entry control system.
