On the occasion of the Hungarian Culture Day (the 22nd of January 2022), the ELTE University Library and Archives invites you to a virtual library tour. This year we remember the poet, writer and journalist János Garay, who was born 210 years ago and worked in the University Library.
The mission of the ELTE University Library and Archives, which won the Hungarian Heritage Award and – as part of the University Library Service – the title of Qualified Library in 2018, as well as the EFQM “Committed to Excellence” certificate in 2020, is to provide Hungarian and foreign academic teachers, researchers and students with domestic and foreign literature, intending to integrate them into the international circulation of scientific life. Now, you can also help to ensure free access to information, to preserve and digitize our cultural values, and to acquire modern technological equipment and implement continuous service development. Please, support the Foundation for the University Library by offering 1% of your tax!
The ELTE University Library and Archives will be closed on the 24th of January 2022 due to technical reasons. From Tuesday (the 25th of January 2022) we are waiting for our readers according to the usual opening hours.
We would like to inform our visitors that due to the failure of the electronic storage cabinets we are temporarily unable to provide a part of the journal collection (shelfmark: between P841 and P1299). Thank you for your patience and understanding.
School libraries belonging to the ELTE library network can catalogue their documents in various databases. While maintaining these systems, the ELTE University Library and Archives developed a common search interface in 2011 within the framework of the TÁMOP-3.2.4/09/1/KMR-2010-0021 project, which can be accessed directly at http://gimikatalogus.elte.hu.
Ferenc Molnár was born on the 12th of January, 1878. His popular novel, The Paul Street Boys is laid in the Botanical Garden of the university. The plot takes place in 1889, although the novel itself was published in 1907. This year proved to be a turning point in the history of the Botanical Garden, as the Minister of Religion and Public Education ordered to hand over much of its territory to the buildings of the new clinics at the university. Pursuant to Article 48 of the 1908 Act the Margaret Island was designated as the new location for the Botanical Garden, and after the move, the former area of the Botanical Garden would have been given in its entirety to the Medical Faculty. Although plans were made to relocate the botanical garden to Margaret Island, the garden eventually continued to operate in its former location with a mutilated area. On the map made in 1901, the new border of the Botanical Garden was marked with a blue line and the location of the new buildings under construction was marked in red.
The databases can be used without restriction from ELTE IP addresses. In case of remote access databases may accessed after Shibboleth authentication, or for students by using Stunnel, for instructors and for ELTE employees by using a VPN service.
The ELTE University Library and Archives' new calendar 2022 presents some outstanding cultural heritage of Eötvös Loránd University, which deserve the attention not only of the university but also of the public.
Az Elektronikus Információszolgáltatás Nemzeti Program (EISZ) portfóliójából az ELTE 2022-ben a következő adatbázisok előfizetését tervezi (amíg az EISZ Iroda nem folytatott le minden közbeszerzési eljárást és kötött meg minden megállapodást a szolgáltatókkal, addig a lista ideiglenesnek tekintendő).
The work was reseen by the general public at our highly successful Cultural Heritage Days event on the occasion of the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death, with the digital version available in the EDIT repository.
