Borrowing material for reading room use

The majority of material is kept in closed storage where users cannot access the book shelves. Information on material and its accessibility can be found in the electronic catalogue - KatNUK.
Material that is only available in the Reading Room (status: Available – Reading Room) must be ordered first. Material kept in special collections is an exception and can be accessed directly in the collection room without ordering it first. Material that is available for home loan (status: Available – outside loan) can also be ordered for the Reading Room.
