Perhaps our readers still remember that some three years ago we wrote several times – here, here and here – about the manuscript legacy of the great Hungarian poet and holocaust victim Miklós Radnóti, which was donated to the Manuscript Department of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences by his widow Fanni Gyarmathi, who recently – on this 8th of September – celebrated her 100th birthday. The legacy was cataloged by the staff member – since then Director – of the Department Antal Babus, and its website was composed by us from the material photographed by Klára Láng.

Fortunately others also remember all this. Just a week ago we were invited to take part in the festival and conference of the Hungarian Association of Content Providers in Balatonfüred, on the twelfth distribution of awards to the best Hungarian websites. But it turned out only in the evening prize-giving that our website was given the special award “Outstanding Digital Content”.

We are of course very happy of the award. Beyond the gratifying feeling of being recognized, also because we were perhaps the only participant who did not subscribe to the contest ourselves, but were selected by the judges. And also because this recognition may give impetus to the Academy Library to continue, in one way or another, the digitization of the special collections, of which thirteen were published by us until the government drastically froze the resources of the culture and, within it, of the Library.
