How can I use it?

All volumes pertaining to the Military Collection can be identified through the catalog of the library. The system of the catalog indicates the location of the book (whether it can be found in the reading room or in the stack rooms), whether it can be borrowed or is only for local use, and the loan period of the borrowed items, certainly.

The majority of the collection can be checked out restrictedly or can be only used in the library. The volumes from which there are more copies available, can be borrowed; a part of them can be found in the reading room while the other part of them is located in the stack rooms. Several volumes have copies in the stack rooms as well, most of them (with a few exceptions) can also be borrowed.

The collection’s webpage has a constantly expanding part dedicated to enumerating and introducing nearly all of the volumes of the collection by topics.
