Administrative library in the Eger County Hall

SZECSKÓ Károlyné

Though the administrative department of Heves County Library belongs to the county library, it works in the building of the County Council (today local government), adapting to the business hours of the staff of the office from early morning till the afternoon, providing them with administrative, legal and political information and literature. The majority of users are recruited from the office staff, though the library is open to anyone. Legal information services are supported by a computerized database of legal regulations named "Kartoték". Overlapping is unavoidable between the legal department (special library) and the collection of the county library, but division of labour, and close cooperation are determining principles. The most difficult problem is harmonizing opening hours, since the county library is open in the evenings, too, while the department is open only during working hours. (pp. 378-382)
