About Library

The Faculty of Social Sciences was founded in 2003, and the Faculty Library was established in that year.Its core collection is from the Institute of Sociology which was founded in 1969 and further expanded in 2006 with the materials from the General Social Work specialisation which seceded from the Bárczi Gusztáv Faculty of Special Education. We are especially proud of the valuable documents donated and left by our Professors.

Based on the decision of the Faculty Council of 12 May 2015, the Library adopted the name of Dénes Némedi, whose legacy is part of the holdings.
