The Electronic Request Slip is a low- or no-contact pickup service, by appointment, that registered users of the SEAS Library can use to access our physical collections while building entry is restricted.

  1. Log in to ELTEfind

  5. The pickup location/library is SEAS Library (Múzeum krt. 6-8. inner courtyard).

  6. Date of your reservation is an automatically filled menu, where you can set up a time period, during which the librarians will hold the documents for you. The maximum amount of this time period is 2 days as a default. During the pandemic we allow more flexible hold periods.

  7. You'll receive an email when your item is ready for pickup.
