In accordance with Government Decree No. 194/2021. (IV.26.), the library reopens on May 10, 2021. In accordance with the relevant provisions our library can only be visited with a valid immunity card.

Current information on the usage of the library

The most relevant information in connection with the visiting of the library and the available services is summarised as follows.

Please observe the epidemiological surveillance standards:

  • - Only those with an immunity card and ID card can visit the reading spaces
  • - Readers who are authorised to enter can use all the services of the University of Pécs Library and Knowledge Centre according to the rules in force on the usage of the library
  • - The use of a face mask covering the mouth and nose, the maintaining of safety distance of one and a half meters and the use of hand sanitizers is recommended in the library spaces for those who can enter
  • - We ask our readers to only visit the library if they are asymptomatic

    However, for those who do not have an immunity card, mask-wearing is mandatory and can only visit the 0th floor and stay only for the time necessary! 

    On the 0th floor of the Knowledge Centre, the administration continues as usual upon registration: you can register; return, renew and receive books and pay your debts even if you do not have an immunity card.

    Information in connection with loaning

    Concerning the days before and after the library is closed, the late fee is 20 HUF/day/document, therefore, if possible, return them as soon as you can or renew the due date.

    During the period when the library was closed (from 11 November 2020 to 10 May 2021) we did not levied charges for loaned books and the active loans’ due date was continuously renewed.

    You can check the due date online by logging in to your library account

    You can read the steps of online payment here

    During opening hours you can return the books in person in that faculty library that you have loaned them from.  (see the table below)

        Can I loan without an immunity card?

        Yes. If you are a registered member of the library, you can use our new service called “TKPont” for book loaning without an immunity card.

        Those registered readers who cannot enter the library can use the remote access services and can borrow 5 documents at a maximum from the entire network of the University of Pécs University Library and Knowledge Centre (Knowledge Centre and faculty libraries) after prior notification. After notification you can receive these documents (“book packages”) on the check points by the specified deadline – mask-wearing is mandatory!

        Remote access services

        Access to databases, electronic journals, e-books outside of the premises of the University

        The usage of the University of Pécs electronic sources is still ensured by the University Library and Knowledge Centre as usual. It is not necessary to be physically present in the University’s campus, libraries and other buildings in order to access the contents remotely.

        You can find detailed information on remote access here:

        The access is only available to University of Pécs citizens with a valid library card or Neptun code. Those students who would like to set their Proxy but are not members of the library yet can register here.

        Detailed information in connection with the use of electronic sources is available on the MyLib blog.

        “Ask a librarian!”

        The “Ask the librarian service” provides useful information for students writing their theses, preparing for presentations or home assignments and for those conducting scientific research or writing doctoral dissertations.

        We hope for receiving questions that require specialized guidance or orientational help during a research.

        The library provides information on sources available in the library network and in connection with free electronic documents or ones that are remotely accessible to University of Pécs Citizens. Only readers with a valid reading card can use this service by clicking on the following link:

        “Chat with the Librarian”

        Providing digitalized library documents for the teachers of the University of Pécs

        At the request of the teachers of the University of Pécs and in order to support digital learning and the completion of the courses, the library offers its help with the digitalization of the documents. In the case of copyrighted materials, the teacher may digitally deliver the work only to the students of his/her course via the digital learning platform he/she uses. Furthermore, in the case of copyrighted materials, the library only performs the digitization of book excerpts, newspaper and journal articles and specialist studies – not a complete book or journal.

        The library performs the requests within 10 workdays which may vary depending on the workload and the bulk of the documents.

        Teachers can send their requests to the following e-mail address:


        Digitalized documents of the University of Pécs University Library can be accessed for free on our website. Furthermore, the supply of new books is continuously updated.

It contains lawful documents digitalized by the University of Pécs University Library and Knowledge Centre, doctoral dissertations obtained at the University of Pécs University, full text documents written by teachers and researchers at the University of Pécs University (documents to be preserved) and theses written by university students.

        Online access to doctoral dissertations
