The seven library units of the UNL (see Libraries) can be found on the five campuses of the university. The work of the geographically distributed libraries is controlled by the management.
The Library of Social Sciences started to work on 25th November, 2002. The Library was built simultaneously with the Training Center of Social Science within a university project. 1750 sq. meters and about 300.000 items can be housed in it. Its task is to support the study and research work of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, the Faculty of Law and Faculty of Informatics. However, being a public library, it should also complete its regional and municipal tasks, and participate in the National Document Supply Service.
At present the collection includes more than 85.000 items, two-thirds of it can be found on open shelves. The less used part of the collection (about 20 000 documents) is housed in closed stacks.
More than 600 periodicals are housed in the Library, most of them on open shelves on the first floor.
The reference collection of the Library is continuously expanding. About 5-6 000 items are added to the collection each year. Partly by acquiring new documents and partly by continuously receiving and processing the documents of the National and General Collection belonging to the Social Sciences Collection (not in the catalogue yet).
The University of Debrecen Library is a national library and it also houses a European Documentation Centre. The Centre grants easy access to all legal documents of the European Union Institutions making it an ideal place to conduct research on European Union law.
