Basic rules for using the collections:
Loans
 

To borrow books, you must have an active library account. The method of borrowing books depends on their location:

  1. Books with the location "Gdańsk Tech Main Building Library - Storage" should be ordered via the online catalogue. After logging in to your library account, you should order the title you are interested in, specifying the Lending Room or Book Locker as the pickup location. The book can be collected after receiving a notification to the e-mail address assigned to the library account. Information about the order ready for collection will also be available in the reader's account in the "Orders" tab. A student ID is required for collection, both at the Circulation Desk and at the Book Locker. A book ordered to the Lending Room will wait for 5 days to be collected, while a book ordered to the Book Locker will have to be collected within 48 hours. You can queue up for stock items that are currently on loan.
  2. Books with the location "Gdańsk Tech Main Building Library - Hall" can be found on the shelves and borrowed using a self-service device (self-check).
  3. Books with branch locations can be found on our own on the shelves in a given branch and borrowed from the staff. If the book is in the branch's storage, ask the staff to lend you the book. In the "Faculty of Chemistry and Faculty of Applied Physics and Mathematics Branch Library" books can also be borrowed using a self-service device (self-check).
  4. The collections with the location "Storage Warehouse" consist of continuous publications. Orders for articles from these collections should be submitted to: nano.bpg@pg.edu.pl. The articles are sent to the user by e-mail for use within the scope of permitted personal use. The waiting time for order completion may be up to 3 business days.

The number of books and the period for which they can be borrowed are specified in the regulations for borrowing books.

Books should be returned on time or extended online for the next period, either by yourself or by contacting the Gdańsk Tech Library. Failure to meet the return deadline results in charging a fee in accordance with the price list of library services and fees and blocking the user's account.

Returns

  1. Books from the locations "Gdańsk Tech Main Building Library - Storage" and "Gdańsk Tech Main Building Library - Hall" should be returned in the Hall using a self-service device (self-check) or using the drop box located on the left side of the entrance to the Main Library, through which you can return books also outside library opening hours.
