Location of the Centre

The Centre will be situated in the centre of Katowice, on Bankowa street, in direct neighbourhood of already-existing facilities of the main campus of the University of Silesia. Location in the city centre ensures a convenient access to the Centre using the existing road network, as well as tram, bus and railway network.

Construction of the Centre, together with new development of the Rawa River valley, will enable the creation of a new space and communication system since new parking bays will be built, as well as multi-use trails and green areas.

The project complies with general design rules and meets standard criteria. These include especially ensuring work safety and comfort. Users frequently spend in such buildings a lot of time, which is why it is very important that things such as comfortable chairs, proper lighting or relatively unrestricted aced to equipment are guaranteed. It is essential that natural light is used as much as possible. The issue of safety will also include protection of the library’s collections and equipment, both of which could be subject to damage or theft. Therefore it is highly important that all sort of security systems are provided, including electronic gates, magnetic labels on documents, surveillance or such arrangement of space which will provide the librarians with good visibility. All these, however, at the same time need to guarantee openness and accessibility. Moreover, a truly functional facility ought to be characterized by compactness and cohesion. The most frequently used rooms, e.g. lending libraries or book return rooms should be situated in the centre and close to each other. Proper arrangement of the library space also needs to take into account the issue of noise (silence), from which the need to create separate rooms for individual and group work follows. The building must be easy to use and economical. Its construction must be flexible enough to allow any future extensions.
