Essence – permanent exhibition

Exhibition on the history of the institution

Bibliotheca Corvina Virtualis

To celebrate the 220th anniversary of the founding of our library, the first comprehensive permanent exhibition, entitled Essence, was opened

The exhibition aims to present the complexity of the more than ten million documents in the collection, representing the entirety of the written, printed, audiovisual and electronic Hungarian cultural heritage.

Notice of change in the opening hours of our library

In order to save energy, our opening hours will be shortened between 1 November 2022 and 31 March 2023.

Price shift

In November and December the annual reader pass for new readers and for renewing members is HUF 2000!

Copying service renewed

Our copying service has been upgraded to better meet the needs of our users.

Inauguration of Budapest's first 24/7 library parcel locker

Operating in the National Library of Foreign Literature, the machine allows fast self-service even during the library's opening hours, but its real advantage is the implementation of a lending service independent of the building's opening hours: for the first time in Budapest, readers can use it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Conference on Bibframe implementation

In 2022, the Bibframe international workshop will be held in partnership between the NSZL and the Italian Casalini Libri on 20-21 September in Budapest, in a hybrid format (in person and online) in English.

We are back with extended opening hours!

From 22 August we will be open again on Mondays from 2 pm to 8 pm and from Tuesday to Saturday from 9 am to 8 pm.

On 25 July 2022, the renovation of the 7th floor Newspaper Reading Room, Historical Studies Reading Room and Literary Studies Reading Room will begin. Due to the refurbishment, the open shelves in the southern reading rooms will be temporarily unavailable.
