All available electronic information resources (EIR) are listed et eResources Portal of Charles University (EPCU). There are purchased resources, meta resources, free-trials as well as free/open resources. You can find there databases, e-journal and e-book collections.

Access to EIR

We differ two types of access:

  1. on-site access – use in case if you are working with computer connected to the network of the First Faculty of Medicine / General University Hospital. The system will connect you automatically. You do not need any ID or password.
  2. remote access – use in case if you are working with computer out of reach of faculty/hospital network. This access is available just for a staff and students of Charles University (account in Charles University Authentication Service is required).

All resources, provided by Charles University, are made available with Shibboleth and EZproxy technology.


The SFX Link Resolver of Charles University (CUNI) provides connection to full-texts and other supplementary services of all available articles and ebooks. Connection is provided by the “SFX Button” and united menu of library services. Users are spared browsing one database after another and search the right one which contains the available document. In many cases is it enough to use one database only. Although it may contain just abstracts, users are guided to the right source by the SFX menu.

Usage restrictions

Electronic information resources may not be used for any non-academic (and profit) purposes. It is only allowed to use them for personal studying. Massive downloading of resource content is considered a violation of licence agreements and consequently an access to whole University resources can be forbidden!
