CL thematic profile consists of the pedagogical sciences, special pedagogy, school pedagogy and psychology as well as other accredited fields of study taught in the faculty.

To become a registered user, it is necessary to own a Charles University identification card and to fill in a paper registration form at the loans desk (for free).

CL manages in-house and outside loans, the most of the collections are located without free access to shelves (stock holdings), documents are delivered by librarians on request – location code listed in the catalogue is necessary.

Some of the collections are located in depositories and loans are realized on request in advance and are distributed on the next day.

Open-shelf collections (free access) are located in the reading rooms. In-house loans can be read only in the reading/study rooms, outside loans may be kept for 1 month (regular loans) or for 1 week (short-term loans) and can be prolonged via the online catalogue. Reservations can be made via the online catalogue on books borrowed at the moment only.
