If you have any questions about your visit, please email bnczyt@bn.org.pl  or call (22) 608 23 30 or (22) 608 24 91.

Please note the new rules in force concerning use of the reading rooms during the epidemic. These rules are designed to ensure the safety of both Library users and staff:

  • Disinfect your hands on entering the National Library and cover your mouth and nose
  • You may order a maximum of three items (19th to 21st century books and periodicals) per seat reservation
  • If you wish to order an item from a collection for which online ordering is not possible, please email: bnczyt@bn.org.pl
  • Manuscripts are available in the Heritage Collections Reading Room (Czytelnia Zasobu Wieczystego) between 8.30 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. Please reserve a seat by email: manus@bn.org.pl.
  • To access prints and drawings, maps, musical scores or ephemera, please make an appointment with the head of the collection in question via email:
  • We encourage you to order publications which are not available in other libraries in Warsaw or via the Academica interlibrary loan system for books and scientific publications or polona.pl
  • We will send orders for early printed books and most microfilms for free scanning and make them available via polona.pl within a week. During the epidemic, these items will only be available via polona.pl
  • Using the "On-demand digitisation" service you can already place orders for free scanning of early printed books and other publications not covered by copyright (copyright usually ends 70 years after the death of the author, so items published before 1951 are generally out of copyright).
