Using reading rooms

Our reading rooms can be visited with valid library passes, with BME Student Cards or with proof of active BME student status. Upon entering the reading room the above mentioned pass has to be handed over to the librarian on duty.

Readers can use reading rooms to read documents offered by the library, to read their own documents, to use terminals or to use their own computers. Documents are placed on labelled shelves of reading rooms by thematic fields. There are handbooks like dictionaries, encyclopaedias, lexicons and other reference materials that help learning.
