New Alma library system with UKAŽ search engine

6. 9. 2021

Today, the libraries of Charles University started operating in the new library platform Alma. It also includes a new form of the discovery service UKAŽ (, which replaces and unifies the functions of the original library catalogue (CKIS), the SFX link server and the Ebsco Discovery Service.

The new form of the discovery service, in addition to searching printed, electronic and digital information sources from the collections of Charles University, also allows direct management of your user account. It is therefore no longer necessary to use a separate library catalogue for monitoring and renewing loans and making requests (item reservations) – everything is available in one place, under a single account, via one online registration. The new UKAŽ also includes the option to save the found records for later, export citations via the manager, set regular alerts on topics that interest you, etc.

You can find more information and instructions for using the search engine on a separate page.
