About the Library

Knihovna UTB, foto: Ivan NěmecThe Library of TBU in Zlín is a library open to the public that offers services mainly to University teachers and students but also to the public interested in specialized literature. The collections include books, professional journals, daily press, CDs, audio tapes, video tapes, theses and dissertations. The Library also provides access to a number of electronic information resources (bibliographic databases, electronic periodicals, electronic books, etc.).

The collection profile complies with the TBU requirements and the collections are being updated continuously. The number of scientific fields for which the Library guarantees professional information resources grows in accordance with the increasing number of degree programmes offered at TBU. The Library owns, among others, a remarkable collection of publications on leather processing. In the past years the collections of the TBU Library have been enriched with collections formerly owned by the dissolved specialist libraries of the companies Toma a.s., Svit a.s., Pozemní stavby a.s., SPUR a.s., and the Svit Vocational School. These collections are being gradually and retrospectively included in the electronic catalogue of the TBU Library

The Library resides in the newly-built University Centre (U13) and offers more than 500 reader seats; 232 of these are equipped with computers and others are provided with network and power points for readers to connect their notebook computer to the Internet. A network printer, a photocopier and a scanner are available to the Library users. The Library has an on-site reading room in Uherské Hradiště. The Library involves 12 smaller departmental libraries housing collections of scientific and specialized literature.
