Erminia Capocelli

The Suor Orsola Benincasa University Library was inaugurated in 1895. On June 27, 1974, it assumed its current name of Biblioteca Erminia Capocelli, as a tribute to one of the key figures in the University's history.

From book holdings almost exclusively of a humanistic nature, the Library has gradually opened up to scientific subjects, coherently with the enrichment of its educational offer and the lines of research active in the University's Departments. Its assets are constantly expanding. The new accessions are organized around specific thematic nuclei, responding to particularly rigorous and concerted choices between the Library Directors and Administration and the University's teaching faculty and researchers. In this way, complete collections of considerable scientific importance are offered to the Library's audience of users. The number and range of users is very wide, not least because of the its participation in the Share Consortium, and the Library offers its users complete book series of significant scientific value, in particular with respect to the Collected Works of classical authors of all periods, constituting a fundamental aid and set of resources for research.

The Library's holdings currently consist of about 175,000 documentary units of different types: volumes and brochures, electronic documents, periodicals and journals (about 1600 publications which can be consulted in the 'Sala Riviste' (Periodicals Hall). This patrimony also includes numerous special 'Fondi', collections mostly the result of donations from illustrious scholars who had, or have maintained a particularly close relationship with the University over the years.

The Library also provides access (in person and online) to digital platforms (linking to monographic collections, databases, newspapers and journals, etc.) relating to the study areas of the University's three Departments. An exhaustive list can be found here.
