For UP students For UP employees

With respect to the current Czech Government measures in effect, the UP Library Zbrojnice (Armoury) main branch and all other faculty branches are closed as of 22 October. But lending books has not stopped. In order for UP students and employees to be able to continue to borrow books, library employees have agreed to re-open the “Loans Window” which was in operation in the spring. “Loans Windows” will be in operation not only at the Main Branch in the Zbrojnice, but also at individual faculty libraries (with the exception of the Faculty of Physical Culture library, which is still under renovations).

Ordering books for loan and arranging to pick them up will take place via e-mailing the addresses below (or telephoning the numbers below). When ordering books it is necessary to state the book’s call number (“signature”), your name, surname, the year of your birth, and the number of your ISIC card. Once the books are ready for loan, you will receive an e-mail with information on how and where to pick them up.

Rules for borrowing:

  • It is even possible to borrow non-circulating books, for a period of one week.
  • Books should be returned via the “biblioboxes” (located opposite the porter’s lodge at the Zbrojnice, in front of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry building, in front of the Faculty of Physical Education dining hall, and in front of the Faculty of Science building at the Envelopa campus). In special cases, and with prior permission, it is also possible to return books by registered mail.
  • The maximum number of books a student can borrow is 15.
  • UP Library operations will still be run according the UP Library Rules in effect, including penalties for exceeding the borrowing period and late return of books (circulating and non-circulating).
