The UCT Prague Central Library was one of the first chemistry-oriented institutions in Europe to install the electronic version of Chemical Abstracts on its local network. This resource provides constantly updated information dating back more than 20 years. Beilsteins Handbuch and Gmelins Handbuch, which cover the fields of organic and inorganic chemistry from the very beginnings of scientific chemistry at the end of the eighteenth century up to the present day, are now available via the CrossFire database in practically every UCT Prague workplace.
It houses more than 100 000 volumes of books, handbooks, encyclopaedias, periodicals and other publications. Together with the access to electronic sources the UCT Central Library represents the largest chemical library in the Czech Republic and one of the largest libraries in Central Europe.
