Bulletin 2014 is out!

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Bulletin 2014, the English-language version of Mercurius, was published recently. Mercurius and Bulletin are sophisticated professional yearbooks published by National Széchényi Library, serving as continuations of the one-time OSZK Híradó (NSZL News) and NSZL yearbooks. Mercurius and Bulletin, respectively, have regularly been publishing news about the performance of the Hungarian national library, about tasks taken on by the institution and, last but not least, about NSZL’s most important achievements.

The Hungarian- and English-language versions of the publication, presenting NSZL’s own activities, come out in a distinguished format, with brief but informative articles and they are beautifully illustrated by color images, on 52 pages. The publications are for representational purposes, reaching library communities within and beyond the borders of Hungary.

Covering a wide range of rich content, we report on the exhibitions as well as on major events of the given year.
