Academic Resources

Library books

At the UNH Tuscany Campus, you’ll have access to a wide variety of resources to help you in your studies. The Tuscany Campus maintains a library of books pertinent to the courses offered in Prato. Both Prato and nearby Florence have public libraries where you can read, study or do further research. In addition, you have access to UNH’s collection of online databases and e-books. 

  1. Library

    The Tuscany Campus library houses all of the books you need for the required readings in all of your courses, as well as chairs and a sofa for sitting and reading. You can borrow books through the honor system, which means we simply ask you to fill out the lending booklet whenever you take a book away. Lending is restricted to 48 hours at a time to allow you to access all of the books when you need them.
