URBiS – the network of Roman Academic Libraries

The ICCROM Library is also collaborating with the URBiS network providing coordinated access to resources in the social sciences and the humanities through an international library network based in Rome. ICCROM’s bibliographic records are pooled on a single search platform with twenty-two other foreign Academic libraries. 

Five years after its foundation in July 2015 the URBiS catalogue contains about 2 800 000 records of printed and electronic books, periodicals, images, geographic maps, drawings, engravings, archive special collections, musical notes and other documents. By clicking on the URBiS icon on the ICCROM Library Catalogue page, users can review all holdings in these libraries, and so locate the best facility for their research.
