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 https://katalog.muni.cz:
- By clicking on the "E-loans Filter" link, you will filter out only those books at MU 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.
- Login and if one of the copies of the book is free, you can borrow its scan for a maximum of 4 hours.
- 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.
