At the moment, in order to access the Sapienza libraries you need to reserve a seat through the Book a seat service.
To reserve a seat, from the Book a Seat page, enter your institutional credentials, then select the library and room of your preference. The calendar shows the dates, time slots and available seats. Only 1 seat can be selected as the reservation is nominative. In order to complete the booking it is compulsory to select the self-certification relating to one's state of health and to the awareness of the correct behaviour to be observed in the Sapienza facilities in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Once the booking has been made, the system sends a confirmation email with a copy of the self-certification attached which must be shown, even by smartphone or tablet, when accessing the Sapienza facilities.
You can only cancel a seat reservation before the starting time of the reservation by accessing the dedicated webpage with your institutional credentials. The system shows the current reservations; using the Trash button you can cancel the corresponding reservation.
The system gives the message "Not bookable" when you are trying to book for a date that is too far away or a date on which the facility is closed. The libraries have set a limit of days within which a place can be booked. This limit varies from library to library depending on the number of places available, the time of day and the number of people.
You can have the booking confirmation email re-sent to you by accessing the dedicated webpage with your institutional credentials. The system shows the current bookings; using the Envelope button the system re-sends the booking confirmation email.
Libraries have set a limit of consecutive time slots within which a seat can be reserved; this limit varies from library to library depending on the number of seats available, the time slots and the attendance.
Please note that it is a very important thing to cancel seat reservations if you can no longer visit the library, thus freeing up space for other users. Just follow the instruction from the webpage. The libraries may, if they deem it appropriate, intervene if a user frequently books seats without turning up.
