Dear Users,

From May 18 we are open, although to a limited extent. Due to the situation we will be operating on new rules.
From 8 June to 31 July 2020, the extended opening hours of the Circulation Desk apply.
For everyone’s safety we have implemented procedures for using the Library during the COVID-19 epidemic.

Opening hours of Circulation Desk during the period from June 8 to July 31, 2020:
Mon - Fri: 8am – 3pm.


Ordering books electronically has been restored. In order to do it please log into your library account.
Books pickup takes place at the Circulation Desk on the ground floor of the Library.


Books should be returned primarily through the library dropbox located in front of the entrance to the Library building.

During the opening hours of the Circulation Desk, it is possible to return books and confirm the cancellation of the account (the so-called circulation card) at a specially designated desk in the lobby.
Books will be quarantined after returning and you will not be able to borrow them for 7 consecutive days.
An account can be created at the Circulation Desk (Mon – Fri: 8am – 3pm). We strongly recommend using the remote option of creating your library account.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to use the Open Access Zone. We recommend choosing books in the library catalog and ordering them by e-mail (udo[at][dot]pl) or by phone (12 617 34 02). Detailed instructions are given in the FAQ during the epidemic.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to use any of the Reading Rooms and the Library does not have internet access from on-site computers.
AGH-UST students, PhD students and employees who have an active library account for the current academic year may place orders to scan fragments of library materials, e.g. an article from a magazine, a fragment of a book. The scan order should be submitted via the form. The scan will be sent to the e-mail address of the reader provided in the form (click on a link of the form)
The services of the Reference Department and the Special Collection Department may be used to a limited extent. The employees are at your disposal from 8am to 3pm. We recommend prior email or telephone contact.

Contact by phone, e-mail and chat from 8am to 7pm.
