Home /


The Library of the Faculties in Miercurea Ciuc of Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania started its activity in 2001, simultaneously with the start of education. It was a great challenge for all of us to open our library when education started. It is a higher education specialist library with the basic task of assisting the educational and scientific work pursued at the university.

The collection of the library is growing through purchase and donation. The value of the collection is especially increased by the legacy donations of Mihály Sükösd, Ernő Fábián, István Jákli, Mária Szent-Györgyi, André Kosztolany as well as of László Vofkori, former Associate Professor of our university.

As a result of the groundwork of the past years, at present the library puts about 43,000 documents at its readers’ disposal. A considerable proportion of the stock belonging to the main collection is placed in the reading room and is available in open-shelf system, in thematic groups according to UDC. The extra copies as well as the documents other than those belonging to the main collection can be found in depositories. As a result of purchases and donations the stock of the library is continuously growing.

Information is provided by the up-to-date online catalogue ( Further information and research are facilitated by online databases with the University’s  right of access (EISZ, EBSCO, etc.). The modern public area of the library consists of a reading room with 104 seats and a cloakroom. In the reading room, besides the shelving system facilitating the free browsing, 14 computers are available for the visitors of the library. The non-public area consists of offices, processing premises and depositories. The total area of the library is 627 m².   

The services of our library are available only for the staff members of the University and for enrolled students.

We constantly work on the improvement of our services; it is also a priority for us to establish professional connections with the libraries of universities with which our University has established partnerships and has concluded cooperation agreements.
