” Apply ” means that you log on with your personal data here.

Pickup is available at the circulation counter in the university library from Monday – Thursday 9:00am – 7:00pm and Friday 9:00am – 6:00pm, if you present the following:

  • Identity card or passport including resident`s registration document
