The basic information about the faculty library FMBE CTU in Prague

The faculty library is very young library because of establishing of the Institute medical and biological engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague in 2002 and than its transformation into University in may 2005. The library consists of about 3 500 books, several magazines and also about 100 electronic medias and VHS cassettes with education programs. The fund of library is still built and focused in area of medical and biological engineering. It is understandable that the library has books from other areas of science too such as medicine, biology, biochemistry, biophysics, technology in clinical laboratories, select technical applications but also psychology, economics, mathematics, physics and electrotechnics because the Faculty of medical and biological engineering has close relation to other science disciplines. The library also offers possibility to use special electronic information sources which are detail described on the bottom of this www page.

The library is focused also on English writing books and it especially from area of medical and biological engineering. For example the most important are:

Our library is proud for very valuable collection of books. Those books are marked with bold letters. Those books are signed by authors with personal dedication to our faculty during international conference EMBEC 05 in November of the year 2005 in Prague. We are proud of it because it is not usual to meet face to face with legends of medical and biological engineering, such as certainly Prof. John G. Webster, Prof. Jaakko Malmivuo and also Prof. Akay.
