Smart libraries in smart cities

Printer-friendly versionPDF version


In the 2019-2020 season, the K2 further training series of the Hungarian Library Institute will be running under the title Library Without Borders. The event series, that has been going on for 10 years now, will offer the usual innovative content but with a renewed concept. We would like to provide more opportunities to think about the topics and to jointly search for practical applications, so there will be a workshop following the presentations.


On our first further training day, starting at 10 a.m. on November 5, 2019, we will tackle the issue of smart cities, which is increasingly present in international literature, and the potential role libraries can play in them.

Venue: National Széchényi Library, Ceremonial Hall on Floor 6 (4-5-6 Szent György Square, H-1014 Budapest)


9:30–10:00: Registration
10:00–10:15: Welcome speech will be delivered by Miklós Fehér, Director (Hungarian Library Institute)

11:00–11:20: Ágnes Kovács-Koreny, Deputy Director-General (Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library): With smart libraries for smart communities

11:20–11:35 Break
