E-sources and catalogues

AGH university employees, PhD students and students have access to subscribed e-sources from any place in the world, provided they have an active library account. This mode of access does not include sources in case of which licence terms or technical requirements do not allow such use.

Library accounts are valid till 31 October each year. Afterwards theyneed to be updated at the Lending Room. 

How to log in:
numer karty bibliotecznej (library card number) - please enter the number of your library card
hasło (password) - please enter the current password to your library account

ATTENTION: It is possible to change the password. In order to change the password the user needs to log into his/her account in the Online Catalogue. A new password has to include at least 8 characters - letters and/or digits.


Access on the University intranet (without individual login) is possible on faculties which registered their IP ranges at the Main Library.

Users not being AGH employees or students can use e-sources in the Main Library reading rooms (provided licence terms allow it).



E-sources must be used according to the terms and conditions of licence agreements and copyright.

As stated in the licence agreements regarding the use of e-sources, it is forbidden to:

  • enabling unauthorized users access to electronic resources by passing on one's login and password
  • download texts automatically
  • copy full issues of a given journal and full texts of books
  • create local archives
  • use the materials copied for commercial purposes. The number of articles downloaded during one session should correspond to current, actual needs resulting from research and educational activities

Failure to meet these conditions can result in blocking the access not only to users violating the rules, but also to the whole university.
