The Slavonic Library
The Slavonic Library is a public academic library specialising in the field of Slavistics. The library systematically enlarges, processes, preserves and provides public access to Slavistic publications in the fields of history, philology, and political sciences, as well as selected poetry and fiction. Information services cover the political, economic, and cultural life of Slavonic nations as well as their mutual relations with other countries past and present. The library also processes and edits specialised bibliographies and research publications, and together with other libraries and academic institutions in the Czech Republic and abroad organizes topical seminars and conferences. Regular cultural events take place to highlight areas of the collection. In response to the International Committee of Slavists, the Slavonic Library also has established a centre for materials of the International Congresses of Slavists.
