How to use our on-line catalogue

Brief instructions how to use our on-line catalogue

Searching

When You search for a book, start by searching in our On-line catalogue. Search a document using author´s name, title, topic, or a year of edition. When the result of search appears, click on the title of demanded document. Now you can check availability of the document. If there is in the „Location of copies“ field a code starting with UK, we have the document in our Central Library (if the code starts with different letters,  the document is located in one of UVPS Department Libraries – and is not to borrow). If there is in at least of one of the fields „Status“ specified „Availble“, than the book is at the moment in the library – and You can come and borrow it.

 

Reservations

In our on-line catalogue, while having the searched title open, click on the „Booking“ icone in the left downer part of the screen. As a demanded authorisation passwords use in the first field Your student´s number (V1234, for ex.), second is Yor secret password (same passwords as You use while loging to STAG). After loging in, confirm the reservation (click on the „Send“ icone). The moment the first copy of the reserved title is returned to Library, You will be given a message to Your university e-mail and the book is put aside for You (at the circulation desk).

If You want to put aside a book, that is, according to our catalogue, allready in the library shelves, give us a call or send a mail to lending department.
