Registration and Categories of Users

Register at the loan desk in Žižkov or Jižní Město upon the first visit to the library.

Any citizen of the Czech Republic or a foreign citizen older than 15 years of age may become the member of the library after presenting a valid identity card. The registration is for a charge (see Price of the registration below). Loan services are provided to institutions within the interlibrary loan service (ILL).

The students, teachers and employees of the VŠE need

  • a valid school identity card and
  • a proof of identity (ID card/passport/personal ID/visa)

to register.

The Computing Centre of the VŠE will produce the identification card for the external users for a charge after the previous registration in the library in Žižkov. They only need a proof of identity to register.

When registering, you may not have any financial or obligations in kind towards the library. By signing the application and the Declaration the user undertakes to fullfil all provisions of the Library Rules, including the obligation to pay fines for overdue items and pay for any loss or damage of the borrowed books.

The registration must be regularly renewed: it is valid for 1 academic year for the internal users, 12 months for the external users from the date of the renewal

After the registration you may use all services and premises of both libraries. Non-registered users  may use the single entry to the library in Žižkov or Jižní Město, allowing them to use the library for reference only or the self-service copying. The internal users may use the electronic information resources without the registration.
