The rules described in the above link concern the operation of all libraries at the University of Silesia, including the following branches:

in Katowice

in Sosnowiec

in Cieszyn



Please remember about the possibility to use electronic sources. The University of Silesia subscribes over 60 databases (including many full-text databases), which share several dozen thousand electronic journals and about 250,000 books.

A majority of these databases can be used remotely, i.e. from any device with access to Internet (also outside the computer network of the University of Silesia). You can use the sources remotely on the condition that you have an active library account in the library system of the University of Silesia (Integro). Authorization happens through the HAN system. Please enter the same login (PESEL or account number) and password as in the library system (Integro online catalog).

The databases can be used by employees, retired employees of the University of Silesia and also students of all degrees and students of postgraduate studies at the University of Silesia.

The website of the Library contains the list of all subscribed electronic sources. Databases accessible remotely have a special link described as HAN US.  This link takes you to the login page and after correct authorization, to the appropriate database.  In the case of sources with a specific access location indicated (e.g. Law Library of the University of Silesia), you can only use them after sending a request to the following e-mail address:

In the case of any problem with access to the databases, use or selection of the appropriate source, please contact us by phone (32-786-51-33) or e-mail (

The library particularly recommends the full-text databases, which can be used not only for research work, but also as a teaching aid (e.g. for e-learning classes or to suggest the use of specific handbooks to students).
