Overdue fines payment

According to the currently valid CU Library and Circulations Rules, overdue fines are set at 3 CZK/day for regular, short-term, and study loans and 50 CZK/day for in-house loans. The overdue fine for electronic devices not returned on time (notebook, tablet, e-book reader) is set at 100 CZK/day. 

Patrons can check the status of their user account at any time after logging in with their university data in the UKAŽ discovery service.  

If users have any outstanding fines on their user account, the account will be blocked until all fines are paid. Users with any overdue fines on their account can borrow any books or other documents once the fines are settled.
