    At the entrance to the library, please:

    • - show a library card;
    • - in case you would like to bring in your own book, it is important to get a permission from the librarian at the reception desk.

    Book search is available online via the  electronic catalog.

    The reader may use library collections available in reading rooms, a special fund for researchers (books that are freely accessible) and a book depositary (by ordering a book in advance).

    In case you need to order a book from a book depositary, you may do it online with the help of the e-catalog (see the link above). The books are delivered twice a day (at 12:00 and 16:00).
