  • extend the loan periods,
  • make a presentation of library services in NUK or your organisation, or organise a course on searching information resources.

NUK employees respond to users’ needs on an individual basis – we are seeking solutions to problems or answers to users’ questions as soon they occur. We are always open to your suggestions.The library is trying to overcome all obstacles that present a problem to people with disabilities in accessing the library services and materials. Should you have any suggestions for improvement, please contact


Access to the library is adapted to the needs of the disabled and visually impaired visitors. You are advised to enter the Library from Vegova Street, through the Newspaper Reading Room entrance. Visually impaired visitors are recommended to use the entrance from Vegova Street because the main entrance is relatively dark. Please ring the bell on the glass door. You can also notify us in advance by phone +386 1 2001 209.

Regrettably, there is no car park for the disabled but you can park your car in the nearby NUK car park or in the Kongresni Trg multi-storey car park.
