books to ebooks

the future of reading is digital

National Library of the Czech Republic joined the eBooks on Demand network

National Library of the Czech Republic now offers eBooks on Demand (EOD) service, enabling their collections of copyright free books to be ordered as e-books on users’ request from any part of the world. Thus the EOD network now assembles 36 European libraries from 12 countries.


Items to be requested for digitisation from the Czech National Library can be found from the EOD search engine or separately from original catalogues:

The collection of the Czech National Library contains over 6,6 million items, including 18 893 historical documents. Important part is National Conservation Collection, which has been built on the basis of the legal deposit right since 1805. Items of the Slavonic Library are also offered, including Slavistic publications in the fields of history, philology and political sciences, as well as selected poetry and fiction.


Now altogether five libraries from the Czech Republic offer their collections for digitisation on request, including also the Academy of Sciences Library of the Czech Republic, National Library of Technology, Research Library Olomouc and one library who also offers reprints - Moravian Library in Brno.
