From September 2021 Charles University will use a modern library platform Alma.
From the coming academic year, Charles University will be the first one in the Czech Republic to provide library services in the same system as Harvard, Leuven, Vienna and other foreign universities.
Before we launch a new platform from September 2021, it is necessary to temporarily close all libraries’ operation at Charles University. The temporary shutdown will take place from 12 to 31 August 2021 inclusive. Data from existing systems will be transferred to the new platform, the system configuration will be finalized, and we will train all CU libraries staff during this period.
We advise all users to obtain the necessary literature before closing the CU libraries. We also ask those who have any outstanding debts in libraries (books with an exceed loan period or fees and fines) to settle them.
