Students from the scientific Departments of the University of Bologna are welcome.
The library has an antique section (2500 books printed after 1488) and a modern one. The modern library: 7000 books; 250 periodicals (100 still active); about 20000 publications from astronomical observatories; 2000 slides.
Due to the early origin of the library, it owns the first issues of journals and publications of observatories, since the end of the XVIII century.
