Opinion poll results

Dear Readers,

we would like to thank you for filling in the opinion poll which was carried out in March 2015. Its aim was to measure the level of satisfaction of the University of Warsaw Library’s services. We have received altogether 4245 questionnaires. Many of them included some additional remarks, which have been thoroughly studied and are now considered in our discussions about the Library’s activity. Below you will find the link to the website presenting the first results of the study.

Where are we?
The University of Warsaw Library is situated not far from the city center -  in Powiśle district in the vicinity of the Old Town and Vistula river. It is only 10 minutes walking distance from the main Campus of the University in Krakowskie Przedmieście and the Royal Route.There is  a convenient bus connection. Four buses (105, 118, 127) stop right next to the Library. It is very easy to get here from the airport or from other outlying suburbs (you must get to Krakowskie Przedmieście and walk the escarpment down).
