As basic task ELTE Library of Faculty of Elementary and Nursery School Teachers Training provides support for students at BA level in Faculty's basic vocationals: teacher, nursery school teacher and the newer infant educator and early childhood educator courses with up-to-date library services, the library also provides bibliography service which supports professors' applied and developmental researches. There are Faculty's students participate in higher-level vocational training, students and professors of other ELTE faculties, students of other national teacher training institutes, and foreign guest students among the constant readers of our library.

Library automation development started in the 1990s. First of all, the bibliographical database was created. In 2000 the Institute was merged into ELTE's structure, and the Library became a non public library of the University. The Library has been using University's common integrated library system (Horizon at first, and now Aleph) since 2005 to assist in cataloguing and circulating.
