In light of the global spread of the COVID-19 virus, we’ve taken the decision to close our reading rooms for an indefinite period starting March 19.
The online reference service is available. You can ask some reference questions to our librarians by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The responses to inquiries will be sent to your e-mail address.
You can also access our materials online, including our catalogues and Digital Library. If you have not found an item in our catalogues, ask the question to the librarians through online form or by e-mail: email@example.com. The answer will be sent to your e-mail address.
