The Library of the Institute of Philosophy of the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts is an integral part of the Library of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts. Information related to bibliographic items that the Institute’s Library acquired after 1991 is integrated in the COBIB database, which is an element of the COBISS system, whereas older items are registered in the card catalogue.

Some advice regarding the borrowing process: If the location of the item searched for in the COBIB database is listed as Slovenska akademija znanosti in umetnosti, Ljubljana and then Filozofija X, this means that the item is registered in the Library of the Institute of Philosophy. And furthermore, even if the status of the item is listed as “available – outside loan”, it is recommended that you copy the reference number X (the so-called Signatura) and contact the Library by telephone (No. 01 47 06 470) or e-mail ( in order to confirm that it is definitely available as the borrowing process is not entirely digitally supported.
