Useful tools

In addition to our traditional library services, we offer a license for Grammarly, a program that helps students and academics improve their English grammar, spelling, and writing style. In addition, we also run a barcode generator which we use to tag and organise our book collections, and we provide access to the Citace PRO citation manager and the LimeSurvey tool for creating surveys.

Citace PRO

Citace PRO is a citation software for institutions. It allows you to manage citations in a simple web interface. Log in by selecting Masaryk University in the list of institutions and entering your UČO and primary password.


LimeSurvey is an advanced online survey system for creating high quality online surveys. To gain access to the software, contact Mgr. Jiří Poláček, Ph.D., who will set up a user account for you.



Software for ECON MUNI students. Our faculty has a multi-licence of Grammarly software for 350 users.

The product serves as a support for those who are not quite sure when writing texts in English. The tool corrects word mistakes, checks grammar and style, all "online": whether you're writing an email, a Word document or anything else, Grammarly constantly checks what you're writing and flags mistakes in real time and offers corrections and various improvements.

There are currently around 400 licenses available for ESF students. If you are interested in the matter and would like to try it or use it for a long time, please contact the faculty administrator Mgr. Pavla Rimešová at, who will set up a personal Grammarly account for you.

Accounts will be established according to the well-known motto – first come, first serve.

The account MUST be linked to your university email address ( for technical and licensing reasons.

As a future user, you will receive an invitation e-mail to this address in which you activate the service and set a password for accessing it. For security reasons, we strongly recommend choosing a DIFFERENT password than your IS password! After that, it will be possible to start using the service.

Each user can use the service on any device: office computer, home PC, tablet or "smart" phone. For your own use, you just need to install the necessary Grammarly add-on (for web browsers or MS Word or Outlook programs).

The Grammarly license is only active for the duration of your studies, and the account is automatically deactivated after your studies end.

We believe that the new helper will be useful to you and will make your work easier, more efficient and maybe even more fun.

Barcode generator

Barcode generator

We run our own web application for generating barcodes for pasting into books. It can be used by other libraries as well.

Instructions for use

The application generates an A4 PDF page with set of barcodes in the CODE 39 standard (without checksum) according to the specified parameters suitable for printing on self-adhesive labels in a 9 × 3 matrix (rows × columns). The parameters are defined directly in the address bar of the web application and are as follows:

  • label – the same inscription above each generated code, for example Centre of Scientific Information
  • prefix – the first part of the barcode, eg 42004
  • startcode – the first number in the ascending series of barcodes, eg 00150 (if there have to be zeros at the beginning, they must be listed)
  • count – number of barcodes to be generated with increasing value by 1
  • position – the position on the page from which generation is started; it can be distinguished up to 9 × 3 = 27 different starting positions
  • list – a comma-separated list of barcodes to be generated together with the prefix, eg 00030,45,78956 generates codes (with the prefix above) 4200400030, 4200445, 4200478956
  • top – height of the top margin from the beginning of the labels, where the value
    • 13 – indicates 13mm margin and label height 30 mm
    • any other - means 4mm edge and label height 32 mm

If the list value is non-empty, only the barcodes listed in this list are generated. If the list value is empty or not set at all, an ascending series of codes is generated according to the startcode and count parameters. The label, prefix, position and top parameters are always applied.

​The barcodes themselves are 15 mm high. The font for the inscriptions is chosen DejaVu Sans, the font size of the inscription above the code is 8 points, the font size of the listed value of the code below the code itself is 12 points.

The TCPDF library written in PHP is used to generate barcodes to PDF.
