Interlibrary loan imports from other Polish and foreign libraries books, magazines, articles copies and other materials, which are not in the collections of the US or the UE library, or any other library in Katowice.
The Interlibrary loan can be used by:
- staff and retired employees of the US and the UE,
- students of the US and the UE writing theses and in justified cases, other students with the written support of a tutor,
- PhD students and post-graduate students of the US and the EU,
- other PhD students affiliated with the university supervisor or persons having PhD programme in the US and the EU (such readers are required to create a deposit account in CINiBA).
Libraries are responsible for all imported materials, therefore the materials can be used only within CINiBA premises and with obedience of the return date set by the lending library (except for photocopies). An application for any extension of the return date the reader should issue to the interlibrary loan before it expires.
