Library Materials of the National Library of Montenegro are primarily used in the reading rooms of the NLM “Đurđe Crnojević”.

Those are the Science Reading Room, e-Reading Room (for the use of electronic publications, the Internet, COBISS system), Music Reading Room (for the use of all types of music materials: music manuscripts, scores, audio-video records and documents), and Cartography Reading Room.

Users of Museum fund, Old and Rare Books collection and legacies can use library materials in the reading room in the former French Embassy building.
