Literature search services

Literature search services search literature according to substantive and formal aspects specified by the user (subject matter, time frame, language, types of documents, etc.). The result is a list of document records or parts of documents. The University Library provides literature search services according to the specialization of individual departments of UWB for scientific and professional purposes. It uses Czech as well as foreign freely available resources and licensed information resources available at the University Library.

  • Literature search services are provided on the basis of orders submitted during a personal visit, by mail or via an order form. They must always be confirmed in writing.
  • Search services also provide methodological assistance to users in searching databases.
  • Students are provided only with methodological assistance in the form of consultations (orientation in information sources, literature search, work with information, citations).
  • Search services are free of charge for UWB employees.
