Reference services desk - opening hours

General info

The reference services desk is situated at the new building Faculty of Medicine at 1. PP (in Czech meaning) by lift or by stairs. At the desk we answer questions about information resources, services to our users and also what types of new rooms are in the library.

Retrieval services

We provide retrieval services from electronic databases available in the library or accessible on the internet, from printed sources or indirectly from databases from other institutions. The scope of search and reference services and their possible fees are determined by the user category of the reader.

Based on a verbal, telephone, written or electronic order, we will process a database search in printed and electronic form - for you as our students (the only limitation is up to 10 sources).
