More information

The aim is to achieve the most comprehensive information, a summary of all available production including extensive regional literature. Our database also informs about the theoretical and methodological thinking of the Czech historical community and brings information on research projects and reports from scientific life and observes Czech history in an international context. Separate sections are devoted to the issues such as teaching history as a school subject, studying history and to the history of education. The domestic and foreign research outputs on J. A. Comenius have been systematically monitored as well. Data are collected mainly by autopsies, which means processing the literature collection from the library of the Historical Institute of the Czech Republic and from other libraries. The result is a data set that offers an unique content, especially in terms of articles, reviews and reports which are not included in any other available departmental database in this extent.
