Digital collections expanding as a result of joint work fill in gaps in the stock of National Széchényi Library.
Our Library will restore the document collection of Nagyszalonta including some 4,000 items, the majority of which are books and the most precious part of which are manuscripts. The valuable collection arrived in Budapest in February 2018, following one-year of preparatory and administrative work.
A free online higher education database including books published by Typotex Publishing House has been available in NSZL since 2018. Library readers can have access to the database via computers placed in our reading rooms.
As of January 27, 2018, NSZL will host a double exhibition set up by the Institute of Visual Communication of Budapest Metropolitan University (METU).
