This Italian Studies guide provides links to some of the most useful resources for researching Italian culture, literature and history. It is not comprehensive, but intends to point the user to the complete array of materials held at or through Penn, as well as available in the wider world. Use the tabs to navigate through the pages of this guide. Listed below are guides more ambitious than this one, which together come closer to covering the range of existing resources. The first is produced by the West European specialists of the Association of College and Research Libraries. The other two come from two major research libraries. They are among the best of what are likely hundreds of Italian Studies guides produced by academic librarians. If you wish to recommend other guides or resources or features that we might incorporate into this guide, please contact either of us via the email or telephone listed to the right. Purchase suggestions should be directed to Richard Griscom. Your opinions are always welcome. Thanks.
