Information services

NUK’s librarians will help you find information on the Library material and search across the Library material and other information resources available. NUK is the national as well as the university library, thus our main task is to provide information about Slovenia or Slovenians, about literature in the field of the humanities or social sciences, library services and products, or to help you use the information services available.

You can contact us in person, by phone or through web services.
