Library at Research Station Opocno

Research library builds up and maintains a collection of Czech and foreign literature related to the field of silviculture. Library holding contains about 9,000 volumes: books, journals, research reports, and electronic documents. Its main task is to gather the entire Czech information sources concerning silviculture as well as interesting books and relevant documents published abroad, primarily in the Slovak Republic.

We subscribe all Czech forestry serials. Our serial holding covers also some Slovak scientific journals. We also own Referativnyj zurnal, section Lesovedenije i lesovodstvo 1990–2003 in electronic version which is a unique bibliographic source in the Czech Republic. Its acquisition was supported by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in the programme LI – Information Sources for Research and Development.

We provide standard library services such as lending, information, reference and bibliographic services. Our users and visitors have access to our own database sources and some commercial bibliographic sources as well.
