EBIB coorganizes a wide range of library events (for example Open Access Week, Public Domain Day, Open Education Week and others) and conferences (internet, digital technologies and open access models) etc. It co-operates with many Polish and foreign institutions, mostly with those which realize similar objectives.
Majority of EBIB’s partners are academic, public, pedagogical and school libraries. Service EBIB is also a member of Polish Coalition for Open Education. Within the frames of that organization EBIB has opportunity to realize the idea of opening of educational, research and cultural resources.
Statistics show that EBIB is regularly visited by 92000 unique users, among which 68000 are return visitors. The service has high search engine ranking, especially in Google. Electronic Library Service EBIB willingly co-operates with variety of institutions, not only from library environment. The scope of potential areas of such co-operation is quite wide.
“Bulletin EBIB”, a professional open access journal published by the EBIB Association (till 1999), is very frequently cited in many scientific publications and as a result archival issues are regularly visited as well.
Another important part of the service is section called „Publications” in which Polish library conferences materials, publications concerning EBIB, materials dealing with contemporary problems of Polish LIS are published. Occasionally some materials published in that section are printed and sent to the libraries for free.
