New building, new services at Corvinus University Central Library
Languages of publication
The year 2007 was a challenging time for the Central Library of Corvinus University of Budapest. It moved to a new library building and went through an organisational restructuring at the same time. Consequently, the library management had to adapt its existing service policy to the new physical and organisational environment. Services are centred around the main goals of the library: supporting the teaching process and students' learning experience; enhancing support for research; supporting the University's growth and development; providing services to the public in order to bring benefit to the local, regional and national community. The most important new services and solutions are: flexible borrowing policies including course reserves, modern and attractive physical learning spaces, group study rooms facilitating independent and problem-solving learning, up-to date virtual learning environment through the library's website, knowledge management tasks for the university including building institutional repositories, targeted services for specific user groups, information literacy training in a modular scheme, launching a Library Liaison programme to establish an ongoing partnership with faculty in research and teaching.
