Reading Hall - Photo made by Kurka Géza

The Night of Museums 2020 provides an excellent opportunity to walk around in our Reading Hall. The dimensions of the classic gallery library in the monumental building of the University Library are: 17.4 m X 12.8 m X 15.1 m, all together 228 square meters. It had originally been designed for 180 readers, but after the opening of the library there were only 140 seats, and in 1899 only 102 chairs welcomed visitors to the library. Today there are 72 seats for readers.

The bust of the poet János Garay (1812–1853), who was the library's first assistant librarian, can be seen in the Reading Hall. He lived in the library from 1850 and died here in 1853.

Above the main entrance of the Reading Hall there is a painting of Franz Joseph by Mór Than. The painting was made in 1876 and depicts a ruler in his forties. After 1918, there were several attempts to remove the painting. First it was replaced by a portrait of St. Genoveva, then with a portrait of Loránd Eötvös, but these changes did not work out. After 1945, the figure of Franz Joseph was covered with a red curtain. The Rákosi coat of arms, then the Kádár coat of arms were placed on this drapery. Today it is visible again in its original state.

The murals of the Reading Hall were made in 1875–76 by Károly Lotz (1833–1904), the best-known Hungarian painter of the second half of the 19th century. The female figures symbolize different sciences and arts.

There is a double glass roof over the reading room to let natural light in. Find more interesting information about the facade and the dome on our website!

Vodkát nem tartunk a könyvtárban, de például az Egyetemi Könyvtár közelében számos vendéglátóhely található. :)

Tisztelt Könyvtár Szolgálat! A SciFinder adatbázis elérésével kapcsolatban érdeklődöm. Egyetemi hálózatról próbáltam belépni, a bejelentkezéshez caesar azonosítót és jelszót megadva, de nem működött. Hogy tudnám a legegyszerűbben elérni az adatbázist?
