Author: Věra Jurmanová Volemanová,  Masaryk University in Brno - Faculty of Arts, Czech Republic

Since the 1st January 2006 czech universities are forced by the law to make final theses and dissertations accessible for public, through a database of theses and dissertations. Despite the problems with copyright comes sooner or later the time when universities really make theses and dissertations public. In the case of electronic form of theses and dissertations publication there would be free and unlimited access to these valuable and unique documents; grey literature would definitely lose one of its parts and Czech republic would finally get closer to the habits which are particulary in the USA and in west European countries absolutely obvious. The process of creating the theses and dissertations databases have begun at certain czech universities few years ago. So, the first examples of fulfilment of the law are expected soon.

The aim of this paper is to describe new area of free and open resources of knowledge, inform about databases of theses and dissertations at several czech universities (especially at Masaryk university in Brno) and give a brief overview of contemporary czech law related to this question.
