ABSTRACT
This librarian's handbook published in Pozsony (Bratislava) in 1941 is not among the well-known ones. Its author, Kálmán Brogyányi (1905—1978) was head of Pozsony City's Hungarian Library, and was a determining figure of Hungarian cultural life in Slovakia. As his work was not reviewed in Hungarian professional journals, and was only just mentioned later on, it remained practically unknown. He summarised practical knowledge for and the tasks of those working in public libraries, and at the same time offered modern theoretical knowledge. The essay presents the handbook, and — to explain its importance — outlines the cultural efforts of Hungarians living in Slovakia, as well as the life of Hungarian libraries in Slovakia. This handbook is an important cultural document of Hungarians living in Slovakia.
