Many countries (USA, Australia, Canada, Latin America, Spain, France, SRN) have national or international systems
(e.g. Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations – NDLTD), which openly (NDLTD) or commercially
(University Microfilm International – UMI) present up to 50 % of master dissertations and doctoral theses in a full
text form. Such systems are in agreement with legal regulations of the given country and the author is the only holder
of the work – of the dissertation. Authors are at the same time informed that dissertation represents a university
document, which presents results of the given scientific community and it should be therefore distributed free of
charge. Presentation is also the matter of honour of the author and his university. In the contemporary CzechAuctorial
Law (No. 121/2000 Sb.) dissertation is considered as not fully defined “Educational work” and from the practical
point the duration of necessary storage is not solved. For the contemporary worldwide conversion to electronically
presented dissertations, the necessary technical and library standards has been prepared with the first positive
experience. The supplement of the Auctorial and University Law appears to be necessary. It is inevitable to be
prepared for that situation before the Czech Republic will join EU.
