Current principles of using services at the Main Library

As of October 4, 2021, we are restoring most services at the AGH Main Library to their pre-epidemic status; however, due to the dynamic nature of the epidemic situation, certain rules such as reading room openings may change. We ask for your understanding and follow the announcements on our homepage. We will make every effort to provide you with the best possible service, despite the necessary restrictions.
