Recognizing that NaUKMA Library plays an important role in supporting academic and research activities, it continues to support access to a range of library resources and services in compliance with the requirements of the University during the quarantine period. In order to protect the health of our users, our staff, and our faculty as well as increasing the quarantine and restrictive measures in the country and NaUKMA, the NaUKMA Library has ceased servicing users since 18 March (reading rooms will not operate).
The library continues to operate remotely, electronic library resources are available, library staff provides advice and user support remotely. We continue to provide most of our services remotely, including instruction, scientific advice, help services, and access to all of our digital collections, including databases.
