From 02.06.2020 the MUG’s Library enables the employees and students of the University to borrow the collections.

Books are borrowed by means of self-service lockers

  • Books from the store room are ordered, just like before the pandemic, via the online catalogue.
  • Books from the Reading Room are borrowed on the basis of an email sent from the domain@gumed.edu.pl directed to the address of the Lending Unit: biblwyp@gumed.edu.pl. It should include: title, author, call number of the ordered book as well as your name, surname and album number.
  • In the vestibule to the main entrance to the Library there are lockers from which the ordered items are collected. When the books are prepared, you will receive an e-mail in  @gumed.edu.pl domain with the number of the locker in which the ordered books will be located, the code needed to open the locker, and the designated collection date.
  • The lockers are accessible from Monday to Friday between the following hours: 9.00-12.00 and 12.30-14.00. After the specified collection date the lockers are emptied and the uncollected order is cancelled.
  • In case of any doubts or not being able to collect books within the prescribed period, please contact the Lending Unit (e-mail: biblwyp@gumed.edu.pl or phone: 58 3491051 from 8.30-14.30).
  • University employees can receive the ordered items by means of internal mail to the indicated address of the Department/University.
  • At the same time we would like to inform you that all orders placed before 29 May 2020 have been cancelled.

Returns of books

  • This can be done by means of the book drops available in the vestibule of the main entrance to the Library building, from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., without prior appointment or by parcel, sent to the address:
