The Witold Nowacki Library of the IPPT PAN is open to readers weekdays 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Activities of the Library:

Making available to scientists, Ph.D. candidates and students the own collections of books, periodicals and basic reference works in technological and engineering relations as well as the collections of another scientific libraries by acting within the existing framework of interlibrary lending.

Continuously gathering the components of library collections and simultaneously recording the current purchases and donations (with including the cases of interchanging between libraries) for the library collections, the recording process consists in giving merits shape to each new component of the collections. The Scientific Committee (the head of the Commitee - Prof. Ryszard Pęcherski, Ph.D., D.Sc.) is responsible for purchasing decisions on books and serials.

Making a system base of data supported by automatic integrated library system Horizon. Scientific information. Inducing the situation and conditions favouring the integration process of the society of creators and consumers of scientific information as well as is promoting the idea of information society.
