e-prezenčka s e-výpůjčkou
Through the e-loan service, MU users have access to more than 10,000 scanned titles of the most frequently required study literature from Masaryk University library collections. An e-loan is the electronic equivalent of a classic physical present loan: an authorized MU user can borrow a scan of a book for a limited time (currently 4 hours) via a computer network. The user can have only one book electronically borrowed at a time, after returning the e-loan he can borrow another book.
The e-loan is available at https://katalog.muni.cz:
- By clicking on the "E-loans Filter" link, you will filter out of all almost 900 thousand book records of MU only those that are available for e-loan.
- After clicking on the record of the selected title, the link "E-loans (login with UCO and secondary password)" will appear in the book details.
- After logging in and if one of the copies of the book is free, you can borrow a scan of the book for a maximum of 4 hours.
- After the time limit expires (or the e-loan is returned earlier), you can e-loan another book.
The e-loan is available to MU users regardless of the emergency situation of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Czech Republic.
Another extensive source of available e-books for distance learning is the collection "National Digital Library for Works Not Available on the Market" (NDK-DNNT), which provides access to the full texts of Czech books published before 2000, which can no longer be obtained in a regular commercial network or as an e-book (there are about 150,000 Czech book titles).
