Comenius University Academic Library

Comenius University Academic Library

Comenius University Academic Library (CU AL) is a central scientific and information workplace focusing on information support of research and education at the Comenius University in Bratislava. Academic Library provides library, information, bibliographic, documentation, retrieval and other services for its users (mostly students, teaching staff and academic community).

The CU Academic Library is not a typical library, where all the stocks and services are concentrated in one building. It consists of 13 independent faculty libraries located in different places in Bratislava, respectively even in the other Slovak towns, and the Academic Library Centre, which is responsible for management and coordination of mutual cooperation of faculty libraries.

The CU Academic library produces two own databases - the Union Catalogue of Comenius University and the Database of Publication Activities of CU staff. At the same time the library, by means of website of the Virtual Library, provides the access to external information resources for CU academic community.
