Admission

If you are not an SNS user, you can submit a request for admission to the address ammissionibiblioteca@sns.it, attaching the appropriate form duly completed.
If specified in the Guidelines, the lecturer of reference will need to send a guarantee to ammissionibiblioteca@sns.it from his or her own institutional e-mail address.
For SNS users, admission to the Library is automatic.

Ensure that the e-mail address that you provide is correct: the absence of a valid e-mail address will lead to exclusion from the services of the Library.
Any changes to the data provided on request for admission to the Library must be communicated immediately to the address ammissionibiblioteca@sns.it.
