About the Institute

The Library of the National Institute of Chemistry

The Library of the National Institute of Chemistry was established in 1948 and operates as an organisational unit within the joint services. It is a specialist library aimed primarily at helping the parent organisation’s researchers achieve their scientific/research goals and to create the conditions for research work of the highest possible quality. Its material and services are also available to external users, mostly experts in chemistry and related branches and students of natural sciences. The material and knowledge is available to everyone in line with the public nature of the institution and the rules of inter-library loans and copyright protection.
