E-loan service

What is it?

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 common 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 borrow electronically only one book at a time, after returning the E-loan he can borrow another one.

How to use it?

The E-loan is available at

  1. By clicking on the "E-loans Filter" link, you will filter out only those books at MU available for E-loan.
  2. 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.
  3. Login and if one of the copies of the book is free, you can borrow its scan for a maximum of 4 hours.
  4. After the time limit expires (or the E-loan is returned earlier), you can E-loan another book.

Scanned books available for E-loan are labeled on cover with logo.
