  • About a new library platform

    After the summer holidays, you can look forward to a new look of discovery service UKAŽ. In addition to searching for printed and electronic resources from Charles University’s library collections, the new UKAŽ will provide users with direct access to their accounts - everything will be newly available in one place, under one account, with a single online registration to all CU libraries.

    The environment for librarians will change as well – ALMA, a modern library platform. From the coming academic year, Charles University will be the first one in the Czech Republic to provide library services in the same system as Harvard, Leuven, Vienna and other foreign universities.


Rules for borrowing information materials

Before borrowing new study material for the coming academic year, the students are obliged to:

Digitalization and burns services

In the study room in Library, we installed a computer and scanner for the A4 format as a new service of the library. It is for all users-meaning students and employees alike:

  • Opportunity of a freely accessible PC station with a self-serving construction of digitalized tests from printed materials.

  • The scanner is equipped with a dia-adapter that allows scanning transparent copies like transparency film or negative films.

  • OCR opportunity (transmission of scanning text into an edited format)

  •  parameters of the scanner: hardware resolution 4800x9600dpi, bite depth 48bits,

  • access to the internet and E-Resources

Scanner instructions are accessible directly from the desktop in PDF format. We recommend you use help that is detailed and localized for the programs.
