How to become a reader?

It is easy if you are a BUT student or staff member. You automatically become a reader of the library assigned to you. For other BUT libraries, you can register free of charge on submitting a student or employee card. You are entitled to this type of registration for the employment duration.

Needless to say that the BUT libraries also offer their services to readers not related to BUT officially. Such readers must pay for the registration and for being issued a card. If they want to register for further BUT libraries, too, they pay only for the registration. The registration fees can be found in each library's guide. The registration duration is one year and can be renewed.

How to log in to the catalogue?

You only have to log in to the catalogue for services other than searching it (reservation, account viewing, etc.).

Login data:

  • login: VUT login or perID (personal ID)
  • password: VUT pin (not VUT password)
