The computer catalogue OPAC is a basic catalogue of the books and periodicals held by the University Library. It contains information about substantial majority of all the library collection. The rest of library resources is registerered by a traditional card catalogue.

Catalogue OPAC can be accessed by web - and from from dedicated terminals in the Rzeszów University Library. To log in you need to know your card number and password.

Readers can communicate with the computer catalogue through e-mail in the following fields:

  • the system automatically sends a reminder about the expiry date of the book(s) which you have borrowed
  • the system automatically sends the information about the fulfilled order, i.e. about the ordered book(s) which is/are waiting in the lending library to be collected by the reader
  • the system automatically sends the information about the fulfilled reservation, i.e. about the reserved book which has been returned and therefore its status is changed into the ordered one - then you have to send the order within 7 days
  • the reader can individually send an e-mail including the list of searching results (using the searching strategy) to his own e-mail account

In order to use the above-mentioned options, you have to add your current e-mail address to the personal data in your library account.

We should also like to inform you that, from October 2006, you can extend the expiry date of the given book(s) by yourself, through the catalogue: OPAC WWW. It's very important as charges are imposed for returning the books to the lending library after the expiry date.
