Unified central registration for libraries of Charles University
From December 1st 2019, you can register for all UK libraries with only one online registration.
If you are already registered with one of the UK libraries, your registration will automatically be extended to all UK libraries and you do not need to complete the electronic application form.
An online application is available for new readers at the Central Library website (in czech only).
In addition to lending services, we also provide scanning either the flatbed scanner to A3 size or on the drawing to the width of B0 size. Price list can be found Here.
Data protection declaration (only for FS CU students and employees)
Dear researchers, due to the limited capacity of places in Map Collection, we recommended you to write us when you want to come and what document (signature) you want to borrow. We will prepare the documents and reserve you study place. If the places will be occupied, we will offer you another term. This is especially useful for researchers outside Prague.
List of links to portals and standards dealing with the issue of citation is available from the Geographical Library of FS CU.
