VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava Central Library


Journals are collections of articles published regularly, e.g. in weekly, monthly or quarterly issues. A number of issues together form a volume and these are usually bound on completion, often annually. They can also be referred to as periodicals, magazines or serials.

Journals contain articles which are generally more up to date and have greater depth than a book. Articles often report the results of research and are a valuable source for current developments in the subject.

The library subscribes to print journals and provides electronic access to the full text of over 6,000 journals, some of which are also held in print, but the most of which are available in electronic form only.

Current journals (recent issues) can be found in the library study rooms (see the lists of journals below), older volumes are available in Study Room upon request. Back volumes of journals are located in the store. Check for a journal title on the online catalogue external link to find out whether it is stocked, the years held, and any additional information or ask library staff for help.

Print journals are for use in the library only.

If the library doesn't have the journal you need you can apply for the article you need through the Inter-Library Loan service.
