  • Standard and faculty loans – The materials are allowed to be borrowed out of the Library.

According to the Library Rules, the general public is allowed to borrow only certain types of materials, others are available only within the library.

Inter-library loan service

Inter-library loan service (ILS) and international interlibrary loan service offer a possibility for users to borrow documents from other libraries through the library where they are registered.

Through the Charles University Law Faculty Library, it is possible to order:

  • Documents corresponding to the profile of the individual's studies at the Law Faculty and are not available in the Library of the Law Faculty
  • Documents not available in Czech libraries (international inter-library service)

Publications intermediated through ILS and IISL are available only as in-house loans. Exact rules for providing the ILS and IISL services are defined in the Principles of Inter-library Loan Service and International Inter-Library Loan Service. Prices for the services are mentioned in the Price List of Fees and Paid Services.
