Subject guide: Italian

Welcome to the library’s subject guide for Italian studies.

Resources for finding books and articles

  • Access Torrossa 
    Database including Italian ebooks and the journal Francofonia.
  • ERIC

  • Google Scholar 
    NB The search service contains not only scholarly literature but also many non-scholarly sources and dishonest journals. Consequently, you should check that sources are scholarly and that articles are not from blacklisted journals in Cabells – Predatory Reports. To get access to full-text articles in the library’s journal subcriptions, you must activate a library link (See Activate library links in Google Scholar).
  • Linguistics Collection
    Database collection for literature on linguistics and language-related disciplines. The collection searches simultaneously in the databases Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts and Linguistics Database.
  • SBN (Servizio Bibliotecario Nazionale) 
    National catalogue for Italian libraries. Good resource for finding books.
