Dear users, please, read closely the following information about the operation of libraries:

  3. Following the points above, it is not necessary nor required to return the books via book drop boxes between 1-31 March 2021. The drop boxes, however, remain accessible to the users during the opening hours of the buildings.

Information for Students [Updated on 3 March]

A travel to collect a requested book in a library is part of exam preparation and the confirmation of a processed book request along with the student ID card can be produced as an authorization for travels between regions. The invitation to collect the books must include: Výpůjčka knihy je nezbytnou součástí přípravy na zkoušku na Univerzitě Karlově a není jí možné realizovat jinou formou než osobní návštěvou v knihovně. Students should prepare their ISIC card and the confirmation of a processed book request. The students may also generate the Confirmation of Study in SIS.

Warning: CU FA Library reserves the right to change the information above as the situation changes.

The suspension of all CU FA Library services for general public users remains valid (i.e., it does not apply to the students and employees of Charles University). From 17 March 2021, the general public is not allowed to enter the buildings of CU FA even to return books via book drop boxes.
