The Museum of Ethnography Library is a dedicated respository of scientific literature comprising over 185,000 volumes of interest to researchers in ethnography, anthropology, museology, and other social sciences (history, sociology, domestic studies, art history, archaeology, etc.). In terms of scope, the library seeks to offer a complete collection of domestic publications on the topic of Hungarian ethnography, a select body of foreign literature on Hungary, and a significant body of general resources on ethnography and ethnology in languages other than Hungarian. Indeed, given its extensive connections with foreign institutions, with particular reference to the publishers of international periodicals, the library houses a rich assemblage of professional literature on the topics of ethnography, ethnology, and anthropology from nearly every corner of the globe.
