Year 2009 appeared to be the record year in terms of the number of newly started digital libraries. Yesterday on dLibra project home page, 16th entry concerning 2009 has been added to the list of dLibra installations. It means that in 2009 there were started 4 more digital libraries than in 2008 (see http://dlibra.psnc.pl/biblioteki/). Moreover, from the information that we receive it appears that 2009 is not finally “closed” – there is still a chance to increase the number of newly started digital libraries in 2009 by several entries.
Digital Libraries Federation (DLF) can also be proud of the record – in 2009 the total number of digital objects available through DLF increased by around 150 000 – it is twice as much as in comparison with 2008, when this number increased by around 75 000!
