Cataloguing of György Lukács' bequest

 
Since György Lukács’s passing away in 1971, his bequest (his private collection of books, as well as his autographs and correspondence) has not been processed and catalogued according to current library standards. In order to address this long-standing deficiency, the Directorate of the Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, in agreement with the Praesidium of the Academy, has decided to have the bequest transferred to its main building for cataloguing. From March 1, 2018, Lukács’s former apartment will function as a museum until the commencement of restoration works on it.

The book collection will be made available to the public from December 31, 2018, and the autographs and correspondence from July 1, 2019. In the meantime, however, the latter can be studied in digital format upon prior request.
