Mihály Pekár Medical and Life Sciences Library

Interlibrary loans from other libraries

The library assumes the provisioning of those items that are not available in our library from other libraries. The service is available for the library members and the employees of the Medical School. Orders are accepted by mail, by e-mail(veronika.martos@aok.pte.hu) , by fax (536-293) or on WEB application form. Students can have resort to this service with the permission of their consultant. The item may arrive in original form or in copy. Provisioning of the original document is freely available from Hungary; but costs 4500 HUF/item, or 14 EUR from abroad.

Cost of copies

From Hungary: 15-30 HUF/pages
From abroad: approx. 3000 HUF/item

The speed of provisioning depends on the external party. The lead-time in case of Hungarian locality takes 10-14 days, from abroad it takes approx. 3-4 weeks. The lending deadlines of the original items are determined by the sending library. The reader has to return the item until the deadline the reader was informed about in writing..

The library tries to make the above process more efficient with an electronic system called ARIEL. Interlibrary loan transactions are significant even on a country basis. The accomplishment of the required documents is 88-92% a year.

Opening hours
