The Scientific and Technical Library
The Pirelli technical and scientific library was added to the assets of the Foundation in 2010, with more than 16,000 volumes on the technology of rubber and cables from the nineteenth century to the present day. The holding includes foreign technical journals, of which Pirelli has the only copies in Italy, such as the British India Rubber Journal, the world’s oldest rubber-industry magazine (1888) and the American India Rubber World, which was published in New York from 1889 to 1954. The library, created by the company for its researchers and engineers, can now be consulted by hundreds of scholars and researchers.
Users are given access to a reading room, the assistance of Foundation staff for bibliographic research, and access to the web for consulting the SBN online catalogue.
