Go to UniTrento Discovery

Access and search

The ebooks of the library are accessible by all UniTrento members and also by external users (but with some limitations) according to rules and methods indicated on the dedicated page
Books can be searched through Discovery, with the exception of those contained in La Mia Biblioteca collection (Italian law books) and of some dictionaries, which must be searched in the E-book catalogue. Once you have identified the book of interest, you are directed to the publisher platform where the book is available. Each platform has its own search interface and can be accessed directly (see Collections paragraph below)

Access methods

All books can be viewed online, in full or by single section, and many of them can be downloaded and transferred to devices more suitable for reading that do not require a connection (e.g. ebook reader).
Some ebooks are protected by DRM and before downloading them you need to install Adobe Digital Edition or other dedicated software on your device, create an Adobe ID and register on the publisher website; they cannot be kept forever on your device, but are subjected to the rules of digital lending (generally you can keep them one or two weeks).
Not all e-books are accessible in the same way. More information is generally available on the help section of each platform.
