The Library lends materials to other libaries in Poland (beyond Lodz) and abroad.
UL employees and students may request materials (books, article copies and other library materials) not held by UL Library. If the item is not held in any libraries in Lodz - we order it from another library in Poland. If the item is not held in any Polish libraries - we order it from foreign libraries.
All materials brought to the BUL Library from other libraries are accessible only in the Main Reading Room. The loan period for materials borrowed from other libraries is set by the lending library. To place an order, state exact bibliographic citations and complete an Interlibrary Loan Order Form.
