Main Library has been in operation since 1969, the same year in which University (at that time Teacher Higher School) was established. Since 2004 Main Library has been housed at 9 Popiełuszki Street, in a modern building of over 6 000 square metres. The building is designed to meet the needs of users with various disabilities (e.g. blindness, low vision, physical disabilities).

Apart from Main Library, the informational system comprises Library of Faculty of Science and Library of Faculty of Natural Sciences. The latter two operate according to reading room rules.

  • free access to databases in Polish and to full text international library consortia;
  • Main Library's own databases (e.g. Problems of the disabled, Bibliography of University staff publications, University's PhD dissertations)
  • compilation of bibliography on any subject
  • free public access to its all collections in reading rooms
  • numerous displays and cultural events (e.g. cyclic painting expositions organized by University's Gallery "Space of Arts")
  • insight into a unique collection of the so-called 'second circulation' publications
