Branch libraries are open from Monday to Friday, and some also on Saturday, but according to the regulations, they have the right not to attend to readers (especially students) on one day of the week (this is usually Wednesday), reserved for internal work, purchase in bookshops, training and professional meetings. The rules for collection circulation are laid down in the faculty regulations, based on The rules for using the Main Library and branch libraries collections, approved by the Deans or the Managers of administrative units.
The source of information about the library collections are traditional card catalogues (available in the libraries) and the AGH online public access catalogue. It contains information about publications which were received by the libraries after 1998 (the libraries, which co-operate creating a mutual catalogue are marked with *). The catalogue also includes earlier collections, depending on the library potential or needs.
