Similarly to other buildings and institutions of the University of Szeged, the Klebelsberg Library will close at 4 pm, December 23, 2014. Next opening: 8 am, January 5, 2015.
On December 13, Saturday the Klebelsberg Library will be open from 9 am till 4 pm - as usually - but on this Saturday the special collections will be available, too.
As there is going to be a University-wide closing down, the Klebelsberg Library is also going to close its gates on December 23 2014, 4 pm till opening them again on January 5 2015, 8 am. Because of this, in the meantime, it is not possible to return any books, so no due dates have been or will be set for this period of time.
We know this is the exam period already, so this is how we are trying to ease the burden of a closed library:
Please beware that books due before December 23 should be returned on time as fines continue to apply even during the closing period.
Between October 13 (Monday) and November 2 (Saturday), 2014 our Library would like to collect information from our users about their opinion concerning the operation of the Library. You can complete the Reader Satisfaction Survey (available in English, too) in the Library (1st and 3rd floor Computer Labs and reading rooms computers) or from anywhere else through the following URL:
We invite our users (students, faculty, researchers, all types of readers) to share their opinion, recommendations, proposals with us and help us to improve library services.
Thank you all for your cooperation.
We inform our users that from November 1, 2014 the Confucius books (located in the third floor reading room) will be handled according to the general rules of the Circulation Policy of the Klebelsberg Library. (Former special circulation rules will no longer apply.)
"It's been a hard day's night"
Generation Y meets the beat generation
March 27 2014, 7pm-12pm
Each year the Klebelsberg Libray organizes a special nocturnal journey into an era or an idea. This year, the 8th library night will focus on recent decades: the 60s and the 70s.
We will dive into the period of the beat generation through movies, music, literature and artifacts. We'll conjure up the spirit of Woodstock, the Beatles, Kerouac, Ginsberg, Updike, the op-art, the VW minivan, twist and jive and many more, uniting in our library American and Hungarian cultures. You can choose from our regular Library Night programs (library tours, quizes, lectures, games) and some brand new retro ones.
Be prepared to walk into a different world on March 27!
If you always knew Hungarian was a strange language but never knew how strange actually, come and visit the new exhibition of the Klebelsberg Library on Finno-Ugric peoples. They live across Russia, Finland, Estonia and Hungary and they all share linguistic and cultural roots. One part of the exhibition explains this all through photographs by former Estonian prime minister Lennart Meri, and the other part takes you to all these places through toys, pearls, artifacts and clothes collected by the reserachers of the Department of Finno-Ugric Linguistics of the Faculty of Arts and through some books of the Klebelsberg Library.
As announced earlier, the maintenance work on our electronic systems starts at 12 o'clock, January 25 so none of our electronic services will be available in the afternoon (no wifi, no catalog, no borrowing, no computers). We appreciate your understanding.
Due to a complete reboot of our servers that need urgent fixing, please expect a temporary shutdown of our electronic services, for some time, in one of the coming days. In order to be able to carry out the immense work effectively, after backing up and refreshing, we have to shut down nearly everything, so the fine-tuning of the whole system can finally take place. During this period, the Library will actually be open and our offline services will continue to function, however, borrowing, searching in the catalog, etc. will not be possible for some time. We are obviously trying to minimize the time this all will take and we will let you know as soon as we know more. Please bear with us - we appreciate your patience!
