Association of Libraries of Czech Universities

From the communist putsch in February 1948 until the end of 1989, academic libraries in the Czech Republic (formerly Czechoslovakia) were little-recognized parts of their universities. Usually situated in unsatisfactory spaces, libraries were provided with insufficient budgets and served as textbook lending offices. Access to current scientific information and knowledge was very limited – for financial and ideological reasons.

Mission and Goals

to promote, develop and support university libraries in Czech Republic,

to advocate university libraries and facilitate their negotiations with information providers in order to improve opportunities for cost-efficient purchase and licensing of electronic information resources,

to support collaboration and partnership (in order to help continuous advancement and effectiveness of library activities and services, education and learning, information literacy activities, etc.) on both national and international levels.Read More...
