The Library collects materials in all areas of Italian literature, including literary criticism, philosophy, and theory. The Library maintains a strong collection in all divisions of Italian literature, from the medieval and renaissance period to the present. The Library collects few introductory language textbooks, but does collect Italian language dictionaries and other language reference material. The Italian collection is limited to materials published in Italy. Materials on Italian topics published outside Italy are listed with their respective provenance.
Most Italian Studies reference materials are kept in Doe Library's North Reading Room. The major part of the collection is located in the Gardner (MAIN) Stacks, with additional materials in Moffitt Library. Some materials, particularly in the area of medieval literature, are housed in the Bancroft Library, as are manuscript and archival collections.
