CIES’s Research Centre and Intercultural Library was born in 1983: it provides tools for the implementation of activities focusing on global citizenship information and education, interculturalism and globality.
The Centre offers a wide range of materials to be read and borrowed, classified according to a carefully designed system. It is available to teachers, researchers, individual students and classes, cultural operators and associations.
Besides, it provides support and consultancy services, helps organise learning workshops in schools, and hosts presentations of works (books, videos) by Italian and foreign authors.
Approximately 12,000 titles are available (books, videos, documents); they were classified thanks to the CDS/ISIS software designed by Unesco, Windows version (WINISIS). Approximately 3,000 titles are already available on the SebinaOpacRMS website.
The centre also offers several Italian and foreign magazines dealing with development, interculturalism and migration.
