Online services provided by NSZL during coronavirus pandemic

National Széchényi Library has a role of high importance in providing access to cultural heritage contents. In the current situation, we use communication channels, such as our website, social media site, etc., to draw the users’ attention to library contents which can be well-exploited by e-learning projects. On top of that, Hungarian Electronic Library offers a rich digital collection for the general public.
