Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Is the registration valid for all faculty libraries?

Yes, but it depends on the way you registered. Online registration is valid immediately for all faculty libraries at MUNI. Personal registration requires that you visit the library of another faculty in person before you first borrow items there. You can find out which libraries you are registered in by logging in to your profile in the catalogue.

What if I interrupt my studies?

If you interrupt your studies or do not immediately start the study programme following your completed degree programme, the registration will expire and it will be necessary to renew it in person when you resume your studies. It also means that you need to return all your loans and you cannot continue to borrow books anymore. Also, your access to e-resources will be revoked.

Can I borrow books after finishing my studies?

Registration in the library will expire as soon as you successfully complete / withdraw from your studies. If you wish to continue to borrow books, use computers and other registration-based services, you must renew your registration after fulfilling one of the following conditions:

  1. If you are a MU graduate, get an Alumni Card. Please note that it is not issued by the library. Bring it with you when you come to register.
  2. At any time you can become a member of the Masaryk University Alumni and Friends Association. After paying the membership fee, you can come and register at the library.

What can I do in the library without registration if I have no relationship to MU?

If you are not a student, graduate, or university staff member, you can:

  • use study places and the assistance of librarians in the main library building,
  • browse books available in study rooms,
  • order books from the closed stacks in person at the Circulation and Registration Desk for reference use,
  • browse the catalogue on dedicated computers,
  • use the Bookeye devices (available in study rooms) for scanning without logging in,
  • use printing service for cash at the Information Desk.

It is not possible to use computers with an Internet connection without registration. Wi-Fi is only accessible via the Eduroam network if you already have access to it.
