AGH University Main Library provides access to library collections for people with special needs.
In 2007, we were awarded the status: Disabled-friendly place. In the 7th edition of the architectural competition "Barrier-free Krakow", organised by the Krakow City Council, we were awarded a distinction in the "public buildings" category for the best adapted building for the users with special needs.
We work closely with the AGH Accessibility Department.
In the event of an evacuation, follow the instructions of Library staff who have been trained in evacuation procedures. In the event of a fire alarm in the building, the lifts are out of service. Library staff are responsible for navigating people with mobility impairments to reach the evacuation area.
