Available services


Book requests are available via the online catalogue from 19th of April (from 8 am). Requests have to be initiated from home. Only borrowable items are available via the catalogue from the reading areas, the stack rooms and the special collections. The guide on how to use our online catalogue can be found here. Requests cannot be submitted in the library or via telephone. The estimated time for fulfilling a request is 3 hours. The exact date and time from when the documents are available at the circulation desk is shown in the catalogue when the request is submitted.
The requested documents can be received personally at the circulation desk of the library with a valid library card/student card. Regarding due dates and the rules of borrowing, the library’s general Circulation Policy is relevant. (Documents with statuses ‘Locally usable’ and ‘Loanable by SZTE citizens for the night’ are not available for borrowing.)


Patrons may return previously borrowed books from 19th of April, 2021. The previously automatically extended due dates (3th of May) will remain valid. You can check the status of your loans here. Patrons can also send the books back via post. Our address: 6722 Hungary, Szeged, Ady tér 10. Overdue fees were on a hold during the lockdown, but previously accumulated fees must be paid.


The first step of the registration for SZTE students is submitting our Membership declaration in the Modulo system and it has to be confrimed personally at the circulation desk to complete the registration procedure but only once during university studies. University staff has to register personally at the Circulation desk on weekdays between 8am and 4 pm. Read the terms and conditions here.
