More about structure

 

The University Library was created in 1968 as a result of a merger of the Library of the Higher School of Pedagogy and the Library of the Branch of the Jagiellonian University in Katowice. Currently, the Library of the University of Silesia together with 13 specialist libraries which accompany different university departments and institutes makes up the information and library network of the University of Silesia.

Libraries within the library network of the University of Silesia provide educational and didactic workspace for students and researchers. They collect materials related to disciplines of science represented by the University of Silesia, as well as source materials (dictionaries, encyclopaedias, address guides, biographies and others), special collections (old prints, manuscripts, rare book manuscripts) and electronic sources (databases, electronic magazines), audiovisual documents, microforms, etc.

The University Library is one of the largest scientific and university libraries in Upper Silesia. Look at Projects of the Library
