Description:
The University Library of Eötvös Loránd University is one of the oldest and even now recently active public library in Hungary. The genesis of the University's library is traceable to a jesuite college's library which was founded in 1561. The University was founded by Pázmány Péter, the Primate of Hungary in 1635, in Nagyszombat (now Trnava, Slovakia.) The university and the library - with more than 15 000 volumes - moved to Buda in 1777, and in 1784 to Pest.
From the beginning the University Library is the national scientific library for philosophy, history of the Middle Ages and partly that of the Modern Age, and history of religion and church history. Nowadays we have more than 16 000 registered visitors: mostly professors, lecturers, researchers and students and - it is a great pleasure for us - the number of virtual users are increasing from day to day.
