On the 24th of May, 2010 around 10:20 AM the total number of publications in Polish digital libraries connected to the PIONIER DLF reached 400 000.
The publication number 400 000 is the Bridges-Our word: magazine of Jewish Workers’ Party (Sjon Poaley-Hashomer Hatzair). Y. 4 (1949) nr 44 (447) published on-line by the University of Warsaw Digital Library.
We also estimated the publications growth rate in Polish digital libraries over the last three months. According to data stored in the PIONIER DLF the average number of publications added every month is 15 000. At the end of 2009, we calculated the growth rate at the level of 10 000 publications a month. This means the increase of 5 000 publications! More can be found on the site with the total number of publications.
We are also pleased to note that digital librarians effort is appreciated by the History and Media portal. This site began a series of articles entitled “Found in Polish digital libraries” with particularly attractive materials found via the PIONIER DLF. We encourage everyone to read them!
Congratulations to all creators and contributors of Polish digital libraries!
