RBI staff also has access to e-journals subscribed by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport for the whole Croatian academic community. Access is provided by the Centre for Online Databases.
The location of "paper" (print) journals depends on the topic they cover:
Physics, mathematics and electronics:• 1st wing, basement (archive): volumes up to 1995 (including 1995)• 1st wing, 1st floor (reading room): volumes from 1996
Biology, biomedicine, chemistry and interdisciplinary sciences:• 3rd wing, 1st floor (reading room): volumes up to 1989• 5th wing, 1st floor (reading room): volumes from 1990
Branch library in Rovinj also keeps a part of the journal collection.
