Library network of BME

The Central library and the network

Average user meets 'Library data' when finding any item in the catalogue (OPAC). In Library data field one can read 'Central Library' ('Központi könyvtár') or other libraries.

Central library means public and service area of the Library, that is

  • reading rooms in the Library building (NOLV, MSZO),
  • reading rooms near the Bridge of Sighs (GTO, TTO and TKO) in the central building of the University,
  • Lágymányos service point in building I,
  • storerooms in the library building,
  • an underground storage facility connected to the Library building and the reading rooms in the central building through a tunnel,
  • a remote storage facility outside Budapest.

Other libraries indicated in the Library data field are maintained by the faculties or departments of the University. The names of these specialized libraries refer to the department or the faculty.

These smaller libraries are organized into a library network by the Central library, that is by BME OMIKK. The network is co-ordinated by the network referent of BME OMIKK who provides methodological assistance to the smaller libraries often run by secretaries of the departments without special training in librarianship. BME OMIKK provides assistance in acquisition, in cataloguing and in other technical activities to member libraries of the network.
