The public library operating in Gál Ferenc University’s building in Dóm Square in Szeged has a unique role among the libraries of the region. Its duty is to support the scientific work of the university, to assist the professional advancement of students and to serve the religious, theological and spiritual edification of the priests and the congregation of the Diocese by helping books. It is primarily a special theological library, collecting theological, i.e. biblical, dogmatic, moral, pastoral and catechetical documents; nearly 65,000 volumes altogether. Other related sciences are also represented by books on the themes of philosophy, history, sociology, ethnography, law, arts, psychology and pedagogy.

The main focus of the Library of the Pedagogical Faculty is on documents belonging to the scope of pedagogy, education and teaching. The library of Szarvas has some 38,000 books. According to the types of documents, the collection is composed of books, Hungarian and foreign periodicals, university theses, CD-ROMs and some smaller collections of old books.

The libraries of Gál Ferenc University support the programme of life-long learning. The education is aided by more than 20.000 volumes at the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences in Gyula. The collection is composed of literature, university notes, thesis papers and audio-visual materials. In the university library the health sciences library background was implemented first: by today there is a wide range of volumes on psychology, sociology, EU studies, language books and social sciences.

The Library of the Faculty of Economics of Gál Ferenc University is a higher education and an open-access library, and it has nearly 60.000 volumes.

We are pleased to inform visitors to the library that GFU Library in Szarvas has been opened in a new location, on the ground floor of the main building, taking up an area of about 280 m2, with the opening up and reconstruction of several rooms.

The spacious, bright reading room and comfortable, new furniture help you to enjoy the library. The decoration of the library walls is very attractive and aesthetic; the artwork of university students is displayed as a temporary exhibition, changing from time to time.

The floor space has also been increased by the creation of a gallery. This solution provides space for students to work in groups. For individual preparation a small, quiet corner is provided. There are about 43,000 volumes that help you in your work.
We purchased new textbooks in order to ensure up-to-date knowledge. Our computer park has also been expanded, with a total of eight computers, internet access and wifi to make use of modern digital technology. There is also the possibility of photocopying and printing.
Our stock is stored in a compact storage system. Retrospective books are stored here.

The new library has already been taken over by our students and visitors, and we are delighted to see that it is frequently visited. We hope that everyone can find the resources they need here and will return from time to time.
