Hungarian Institutes abroad and their libraries 1.

Cultural diplomacy and its institutional system are part of the re-formulation of Hungarian external affairs. In this first part of a series the Hungarian Institutes in Berlin, Sofia, Vienna and Delhi, and their libraries are introduced. In the next issue the Institutes in Rome, Paris, Moscow, Prague, Warsaw and Helsinki will be described. It is common for the fate of these libraries that they are in want of room, their resources are limited, they have no full-time, professional librarians. The Institutes organize high-level programmes. To assist their work and the formation of an authentic image of Hungary consciously organized, professionally correct libraries providing up-to-date services would be needed. (pp. 556-576)
