Considering that not all documents from the NLB collection are represented in the Electronic catalog, we recommend you to use the Image catalog as well.
Warning! Documents published before 1993 are represented as records obtained by means of retroconversion* of the NLB card catalogs. As a result, most of these records have neither search elements «Subject» and «Person», nor search mode «Search by dictionaries».
*Retroconversion is industrial (i.e. in great volumes) conversion of text data from graphic into digital machine-readable format by means of scanning and automatic recognition, or manual data input.
State of an order is represented in the bookmark "Orders".
You can order the following kinds of documents:
Old printed publications, manuscripts and dissertations can be orders in the presence of a special permission only (see the Reading Rooms Code of Service).
Personal catalog is available only to users having the NLB’s library ticket after registrationon the NLB’s Internet portal.
