E-loans: access from home

E-loan is a service for viewing scanned study literature from MU libraries on a computer screen without the possibility of downloading and saving it.

The E-loan service is available to students and staff of Masaryk University and currently contains around 10,000 titles of study literature from MUNI libraries.

  • To view a book in an e-loan, you must first borrow it.
  • For one book, it is possible to make only as many electronic loans at a time as MU libraries have physical copies in their collection. Loans are based on a "first come" system.
  • The user can borrow only one e-loan at a time, and the maximum loan period is 4 hours. After finishing work with the e-loan, it is necessary to return the book so that it can be immediately accessible to another user.
  • The e-loan only allows viewing the pages of selected books on the screen, no other functions (reservations, lending, etc.) allow.

At the time the library is closed, we recommend students to use MU Electronic Information Resources. It is an online database of scientific publications (journals, e-books, conference proceedings, encyclopedias, etc.), available to its students and employees for free.

To access the resources it is necessary to set up Remote access (instructions).
