Kujawsko-Pomorska Digital Library

Within the framework of Scientific Libraries Consortium of Kujawsko-Pomorski Region, Nicolaus Copernicus University Library in Toruń has started a long-term enterprise of building a digital library called Kujawsko-Pomorska Digital Library. The project implementation was financed by EU Structural Funds and first collections are to be created in the years 2005-2006. At the end of 2006 the collections were accessed.

The main aim of the project is to create a regional digital library to support the development of an intellectual and innovative potential of the society, to make a quick access to information and knowledge content possible, and to protect valuable documents of the region and national literature works.

Nicolaus Copernicus University Library is opened for each good proposal towards enriching digital base of this digital library.
