Budapest, September 1 (MTI) – Inmates are scanning books on forensic science to be added to the Hungarian Electronic Library, daily Népszabadság said citing one of its founders.

It was an idea by the director of the Győr-Moson-Sopron County prison that inmates should scan books on forensic literature which could then be added to the electronic library, department head of the National Széchenyi Library István Moldovan told the paper.

The Hungarian Electronic Library project launched in 1995 had average 60-70,000 visitors per month in the first seven years of operation. The number of visitors has since grown to a daily 30-35,000 and nearly 16,000 publications are now available in the online library, the paper said.
