The Economics Library currently holds around 15,000 volumes and a number of Italian and foreign magazines and journals which cover various different strands of economics. It is therefore an important academic research facility for teachers, students and researchers in general. The libary holds materials on economic subjects and various specialisation areas, including mathematical and quantitative methods. There is also a wide range of volumes relating to regional and geographical economics. Certain areas of the library are dedicated to business economics, especially the study of commodities.
