Description of database structure (in Czech only)

*) Aleph's OAI-PMH implementation follows the specifications available from http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/openarchivesprotocol.html with a single exception – individual records cannot be retrieved using the "GetRecord" function.

Files for download are generated from current data once a week (each Monday).

Although the datasets are available under a CC0 license, you can consider mentioning the National Library of the Czech Republic as a source of data for your project.

If you wish to learn more about our activities related to opening data, feel free to have a look at a list of publications and presentations on this topic and an overview of our collaboration with Wikidata.

Please also consider sharing with us – via a webform – how you have used the data and provide your feedback.
