Some novelties of our library


Dear Visitors,

We are glad to inform you that the website of our library is enriched with a few novelties. Hopefully, they will be as popular as the older services and functions available in the library system of the Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library.

The aim of the development is to make a more modern portal which provide online information about the metropolitan public library system on a high level. It is up-to-date both in appearance and services.


The altered portal reflects the renewed image of the Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library. By changing the structure and reshuffling the available contents, the users can navigate and access to information easier on the whole portal and, at the same time, we have retained the useful and interesting functions and articles that were accessible for the users formerly. The reform of the structure and contents covers some popular service elements such as the information pages of our libraries and program calendar; the range of search ways are also expanded.

The library can provide the users with a wider range of electronic services and information by expanding the technical potentials of our website; the application of e-learning system and the video tutorials are included.
The aids (video tutorials) are enriched with audio content and subtitle in order to make the access to information easier for the visually impaired.
The management and the librarians turn stressed attention to the handicapped users; the applications atteched to the portal can be used by reading softwares, too.
All of our developments are made to help the widest range of remote users. Moreover, we make an emphasized effort to meet the requirements of the blind, the visually impaired and the deaf, the learning youth, people with disadvantages and those who are interested in music.
