Final remarks

NOTE 1:

You do not need a requisition form to borrow a book from open stacks. If you can borrow the book

go directly to the Circulation Desk

NOTE 2:

Not all books and serials have records in the on-line catalogue. To find them, you should also search

the card catalogues

NOTE 3:

There are no call numbers (Library of Congress Classification) in card catalogues. Therefore you

should always start searching from the on-line catalogue

We wish you successful searching!

Please ask a reference librarian for help

if you need it
