The Main Library of AGH University of Science and Technology

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 Branch Libraries & Inventory Control Division)


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