Free access

alt

A large part of the library collections is in the open areas, and the collections are typically public. This means that each piece can be easily viewed and then a reader can decide whether he wants to use it and for what period of time.

In the free access areas readers can reach books by themselves, and at the end of work put them back in designated areas (orange boxes that are on the shelves) or borrow them.

Borrowing books from free access is self-service thank to self-borrowing devices (called selfchek) located on each floor of the building. The book can also be taken to the circulation desk on level 0 to be borrowed with support of the library staff. Books marked with a red dot cannot be borrowed, but can only be used on site.

In the case of free access books, an electronic catalogue only gives the location of a copy (shelving), the ordering option is inactive.
