In 2009 the project Kujawsko-Pomorska Digital Library has new partners, which are: Torun Center for Contemporary Art Znaki Czasu, Baj Pomorski Theatre, Dwór Artusa Centre for Culture and the Grudziądz Municipal Library signs the agreement. All these institutions which have signed an agreement on cooperation with the KPDL will digitize publications related to our region, precious objects or cultural heritage or objects born digital that arise in the KPDL on a regular basis. Librarians, culture and museum officers had been trained by the Nicolaus Copernicus University Library teams and provided with appropriate software, so work can begin immediately.
We hope that the combined forces will enrich resources of the KPBDL and give our residents a faster and better access to culture. The University Libraries in Torun and Bydgoszcz conduct further negotiations and discussions with the other institutions of culture, for which digitization, protection and promotion of a their collection is important.Bożena Bednarek-Michalska, Project Coordinator
