Students have available the Self-Access Centre/SAC at the Institute of Foreign Languages. It is primarily designated for students from the English Language and Literature Section, but books can also be borrowed by other members of the university academic community if and when they have a valid identification card. SAC contains a relatively extensive library from the areas of English language, linguistics, literature, literature for children and young people, culture of English speaking countries as well as smaller collections of books from other branches, such as, for example, art or the environment. Coursebooks and dictionaries are also available, but dictionaries only for reference purposes and cannot be checked out. This is also the case with certain books, particularly expensive ones, which can only be worked with inside SAC. The vast majority of the books are in English.
Interested parties receive a SAC library card. Apart from borrowing books personally at SAC, card-holders can prolong and reserve books by means of the on-line catalogue at http://lib.dovu.upol.cz/index.php.
The opening hours for SAC change every semester depending on the time schedules of the academic employees who work in the library for certain hours.
