When to work with UKAŽ?

UKAŽ is suitable to use if:

  • you are a complete beginner and do not orient yourself in the available information sources at CU,
  • you want to do an overview search on a topic,
  • you need articles on a topic and there is no specialized database for your field or you do not know about such a database,
  • you want to find a book or journal that you know are available at CU libraries.


We do not recommend using UKAŽ if you need to:

  • work with special functions of some databases (for example Web of Science či Scopus),
  • you need a database which is not in UKAŽ,
  • you need to search only in one specific database (you can find list of databases which are available at Charles University here).
