Our legal heritage at the click of a button - A Gateway to Hungarian Law

The Library celebrating the 150th anniversary of its foundation has always been the library of legislation and for 65 years it has also been serving as a special research library of law open to the public. This duality drives its activities related to managing and conserving cultural heritage as well: as a library supporting legislation it has a duty to preserve and make publicly available the Hungarian parliamentary documents as national cultural assets not only in print but also in a digitized version. Similarly, as a library of law, the long-term preservation of its unique legal collection is also a priority. Our recently launched "Gateway to Hungarian Law" digitization project has also been created along the lines of nurturing our legal heritage.
