Processing foreign legal literature in the Library of Parliament

In the acquisitions policy of the Library of Parliament legal science has enjoyed priority right from the beginning. Its collection principles laid down in 1894 also reflected the importance of law, which in turn also became accentuated by the Legal Deposit Act of 1922 as well as ministerial decree No. 164 of 1958 issued by the minister of culture that rendered the Library of Parliament a national special research library of law, 20th century and contemporary history and political science.

Open-shelf documents in the library

Most part of the library's 700 thousand-volume holdings is stored in closed stack rooms from which users may request items via our online catalogue. However, we have always tried to make the widest possible selection of books and periodicals available on open-shelves as well. At the moment we provide access to 40 thousand open-shelf documents in the Main Reading Room all of which may be browsed and used freely without any assistance.

Acquisition amid revisionist sentiments

In the 1920s the fierce revisionist sentiment predominating contemporary political and cultural life in Hungary had necessarily reached the Library of Parliament as well: the institution was required to actively support revisionist propaganda goals by its own means, that is via collecting, processing and arranging primary and secondary literature available on the subject.
