Reading Rooms

Reading Rooms

There are two Reading Rooms at our library: for Books & Journals and for Electronic Resources. To access the Reading Rooms, you will need to have an active library account and present your student ID card or library card. All users are expected to adhere to the Medical Library Rule and the safety measure introduced at our library as a response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Books & Journals Reading Room provides access to the reference collection books (open stacks), recently published journals (last five years) and items received on interlibrary loan from other libraries.

If an item you are looking for is not available here, you can request it from the closed stacks. Please, find this item in the online catalogue, place an order and choose the Books & Journals Reading Room as the delivery location.

Journals published five years ago or earlier are stored in the closed stacks and can be ordered to the Books & Journals Reading Room. Selected papers can be accessed by SDDE scanning services.

In the Electronic Resources Reading Room you can access online databases, electronic books and journals, and online medical resources.

Please, leave your coats and bags in the cloakroom on the ground floor or in the lockers in the Library before entering a reading room. We offer free WiFi access.

All users are welcomed but priority is given to the Jagiellonian University Medical College students, faculty and staff.
