Five requests of ILL ordered from libraries in the Czech Republic per semester are free of charge, for each next you pay CZK 50. The lending period is determined by the lending library. Overdue fines are imposed according to their price list.

There is a fee of CZK 50 charged for each ILL item that you don’t pick up. A fee of CZK 150 is charged for each uncollected international ILL.

International Interlibrary Loan Service (IILL)

If the document is not available in any library in the Czech Republic, it can be ordered from abroad through IILL.

  • Users submit their requests for documents in the same manner as in ILL. The only difference is that it is necessary to note that the service requested is IILL.
  • Books from abroad are always charged, the price is between CZK 300–600. In case of articles from abroad the price is CZK 10 per page (the fees are listed in the Price List included in the Library Rules).
  • A fee of 150 CZK is charged for each uncollected IILL item.
