Rules for Remote Registration

  1. A User, who wants to register in the NL remotely, has to pre-register himself/ herself in the NL online catalogue. His/ Her successful pre-registration is confirmed both on the screen and by automatic notification from the NL sent to User´s e-mail address given in pre-registration.
  2. After successful pre-registration, the User will obtain from the NL:
    • User ID - is displayed after completing the pre-registration and is also given in the automatic notification sent to the user´s e-mail address from the NL
    • a link to pay the registration fee online - it is displayed after completing the pre-registration and is also given in the automatic notification sent to the user´s e-mail address from the NL
    • a Contract - is also included in the NL e-mail notification sent automatically to the user
  3. User ID will serve as the login to request individual provided services even after finishing the remote registration. A password is chosen by User himself/ herself in pre-registration, later it can be changed in the reader´s account.
  4. The user will check and fill in the requested data in the Contract (mandatory information marked with asterisk), he/ she will print the Contract, sign it, have his/ her signature in the Contract verified (legalized) at any public administration contact point (e.g. at Czech POINT service of Czech Post). In legalization, it is necessary to submit the valid personal document for verification.
  5. The signed Contract and the verification clause on legalization must be delivered to the National Library by one of the following ways:
    • send the original by post at the address of the National Library of the CR (on the envelope you must write MAIN HALL – Registration)
    • send the scanned Contract by e-mail at the address hala.os@nkp.cz; it is necessary to scan the whole Contract including the verification clause for legalization, accepted is the scan made on user´s own equipment (the scan must be legible and of adequate quality), or made through Konverze service provided at Czech POINT).
  6. The National Library reserves the right to reject the verified Contract if:
    • text of the Contract is changed in any way by the User (except for User´s identification data in the Contract header and in Article II)
    • valid User´s data are not given in the Contract header and the Article II. If the User´s data in Article II of the Contract are different from those in the verification clause for legalization, the NL will consider valid the data in the verification clause for legalization.
  7. The User will pay the registration fee for 1 year (365 days). The amount of the registration fee is given in the NL Fees and Services Price List, Supplement 5 of the NL Rules. The NL will send the link to pay the registration fee to the e-mail address provided by the User in pre-registration. Payment can be made only online by payment card. When the payment has been accepted, the payment receipt will be sent to the User´s e-mail address.
  8. Procedures given in para 4 and 5, and the registration fee payment can be made concurrently. If the User claims any discount (see the NL Fees and Services Price List), it is appropriate to send first the signed Contract and proof of recognition of the discount for TP, ZTP, ZTP/P holders, and wait with the registration fee payment until you receive a message from the NL.
  9. Within two working days at the latest from the date on which the payment of the registration fee was registered in the NL and when the signed Contract was delivered to the National Library (the later date is applied), the NL will finish the registration, it will activate the access to resources and services available to remotely registered users and it will inform the User by e-mail. It will also send him/ her a scan of the concluded Contract.
  10. Remotely registered users do not obtain reader cards.
  11. The NL is authorized to cancel the pre-registration within 7 days from the date of pre-registration, in case that:
    • The NL has not obtained the signed Contract from the User and the registration fee has not been paid
    • The NL will obtain the signed Contract but the registration fee will not been paid and User´s age or submitted documents (see para 10) will not prove User´s claim for discount  (The NL Fees and Services Price List). In this case the NL will contact the User at his/ her e-mail address given in pre-registration with a request for the registration fee payment. If the User does not pay the fee within ten (10) calendar days from the date of the request for payment, the already sent Contract will be discarded.
    • The User will pay the registration fee but will not deliver the signed Contract to the NL. In this case the NL will contact the User at his/ her e-mail address given in pre-registration with a request for delivery of the signed Contract. If the User does not deliver the signed Contract within ten (10) calendar days from the date of the request for delivery, the already paid registration fee will be returned within 14 working days to the account, from which it was sent.
  12. If the NL finds, in finishing the registration, on the basis of the delivered Contract and registration fee payment that the User has already been registered in the NL, then one of the following situations may occur:
    • His / her valid registration is associated with a serious offence against the NL Rules: in this case the NL reserves the right to refuse the remote registration, the registration payment will be returned to the account, from which it was sent and the delivered Contract will be discarded.
    • The User has been entered in the evidence of the NL without a valid registration which is associated with offences against the NL Rules: in this case the NL will contact the User; his/ her remote registration will only be possible if the obligations are settled, otherwise the NL reserves the right to refuse the remote registration, the registration payment will be returned to the account, from which it was sent and the delivered Contract will be discarded.
    • The User has been entered in the evidence of the NL without a valid registration which is not associated with offences against the NL Rules: in this case the NL will contact the User and will adjust the subsequent steps as necessary to avoid duplicate registration.
  13. If a remotely registered User is interested to become the registered User (The NL Rules, Part 1), and to make use of other services, he/ she must contact library staff in the Main Hall when he/ she first arrives at the NL; he/ she must meet the registration conditions (see The NL Rules, Part 4) and pay the fee for issue of a reader card in accordance with The NL Fees and Services Price List, Supplement 5 of the NL Rules. The issued reader card will be valid for 365 days from the date of remote registration.
  14. The User will be notified by e-mail about the upcoming expiration date of his/ her registration. If he/ she is interested in further use of library services, it is necessary to request (by e-mail) for renewing the registration and to pay annual registration fee in accordance with The NL Fees and Services Price List (documents authorizing to claim discount, if any, must be submitted again).
  15. The User is obliged to use all information sources and information contained in them in accordance with valid legal regulations.
