AGH University Main Library

Information services

The basic function of the library is information activity, such as information retrieval and delivery for a wide circle of information users, the circulation of collections, and the organisation of access to e-sources. Rules for the use of collections are defined in Regulamin korzystania z Biblioteki Głównej i sieci bibliotek Akademii Górniczo-Hutniczej im. Stanisława Staszica.

Information services include:

  • assistance in bibliographic and subject searches on the basis of electronic and printed information sources 
  • compiling literature list by subject for faculty and for industry 
  • analyses of citations of scientific publications based on Web of Science databases 
  • information on the Main Library collections, the collections of branch libraries and other Polish and foreign libraries (such information can also be obtained in the Circulation Department and Independent Section for Interlibrary Cooperation and Collection Inventory)


These services are based on available information sources in print (bibliographies, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, guides), and e-sources (databases, e-journals, e-books).
