The library practice of more than twenty countries, followed during the second phase of the pandemic, was compiled by the staff of National Széchényi Library under the coordination of the Hungarian Library Institute.
On January 1, 2021, National Széchenyi Library was assigned a new task, based on a government decree issued in December 2020, which defines the tasks of the national library in relation to the preservation of web content provided and made public on the Internet.  
Recordings of the presentations of the online conference held on December 2, 2020, as well as the deliverd presentations are now available.
Due to the extension of pandemic restrictions, our Library is still unable to receive its readers personally. In this difficult time, we want to compensate our loyal readers for the inconvenience.
As the largest Hungarian public collection, National Széchényi Library has been keeping a whole range of treasures that can rarely be seen and which may be surprising at first sight. During 2020, however, more and more curiosities became digitally freely accessible via our recently launched databases.
Dear Readers, Between December 24, 2020 and January 3, 2021, our services provided via email or telephone will be unavailable. Online copying queries received after December 9 will be answered and fulfilled from January 4 onwards.
A paper written by our colleagues Márton Németh and László Drótos was evaluated as Highly Commended Paper in special journal Digital Library Perspectives.
