Remote access to books

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 in-house loan.

A registered MU user can borrow a scan of a book for a limited time (4 hours) via computer network. Only one book at a time can be borrowed, another item is then possible to borrow after returning the previous one.

For one book, it is possible to make only as many electronic loans at a time as MU libraries have free physical copies in their collection. Loans are based on a "first come" system.

How to use it?
