Library in the autumn semester: information not only for new students

5 Oct 2020

Upcoming semester is not going to be a regular one, and it may not be easy to get to know how the university and library function. The situation may change over time; you will find the up-to-date information here on our website in the news section or our Facebook page. In case of any uncertainties, do not hesitate to contact us at knihovna@phil.muni.cz


From October 30, only the pick-up place for ordered books is accessible. Other services are available online.


Opening hours

Register in the library

You can't borrow books without registration and ISIC (or other student or employee chip card). We highly recommend you register online; just one click to conclude library service agreement: https://inet.muni.cz/app/knihovny/prihlaska?app.setlang=EN

All about registration

Borrowing and returning of books, journals, board games and more

Right now, there are no restrictions concerning circulation services.

You can search for books in advance in the online catalogue, where you can also see their location in the library building. You have to request books located in the closed stacks collection via the catalogue. The requested books will be ready within 20 minutes during the library's opening hours.

You can borrow books at the Registration and circulation desk on the ground floor, or you can use the Self-check machine. You can later return the books at the same desk, or by throwing them in one of the Book Drops (at the entrance to the faculty premises or at the gatehouse).

You can not check out books with In-house loan status – you have to study or scan them in the library.
