Hungary


Gocza, Julianna, Fontes Artis Musicae


The Hungarian National Branch continues to expand. Last year, two members joined our organization: the County library of Eger and the organization's president--as an individual member. Our membership now consists of 15 members, of which 12 are institutional members.

To harmonize the work of the two organizations, this year the Hungarian National Branch--working on international level--and the Music Librarians Section--working on national level--made a cooperation agreement. As a part of this cooperation, we run a common website and we are organizing many programmes throughout the country.

R projects

We are preparing an extended negotiation with the participation of the responsible members of the ministry, the management of the National Szechenyi Library and the Musicological Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the board of the Hungarian Musicological Society. …
