HOW TO SEARCH FOR MATERIALS I WANT TO BORROW?

You can search for materials in one of the catalogues or directly in the open access area.

The online catalogue can be accessed in all libraries that use the COBISS System. The search procedure is the same in all libraries; only the location information is different. These data show you the location of the materials for each specific library and are essential for the search. Before searching make sure that you search in the right library. The information on the library you are searching in is written in the upper part of the screen in the column BAZA PODATKOV/DATABASE

The location information is written under the record for a specific item.

- available, loan period…,
- on loan, to return within...,
- available-reading room,
- in preparation – in process.
