The SBA Card, which costs 1 Euro, can be used indiscriminately in all of the libraries within the University of Padova Library System and it has no expiry date.

With this card, it is possible to:

  • access all of the libraries within the SBA;
  • consult both printed and electronic educational resources;
  • photocopy and print; request bibliographic assistance;
  • use the local lending service;
  • attend workshops on bibliographic research;
  • and use other paid services, such as: document delivery;
  • interlibrary lending;
  • bibliographic research producing specialist bibliographies at the “Fabio Metelli” Psychology library and the “Vincenzo Pinali” Medical library.


Terms and conditions of issue.

To register, it is necessary to go to one of the University’s libraries with a form of ID and your Health Insurance Card stating your Tax Code and fill in an application form.
