slide15

It was believed that establishing the KLG in 1994 would cause the participating libraries to have the same library system. During the execution of the Project, the Main Library of the Krakow University of Technology decided on a purchase of a different system (TinLib), while the Main Library of the Academy of Physical Educationwas using the Polish MAK software until 2003. The provision in the Agreement regarding the use of the same system should have led to the exclusion of these two libraries from the KLG, but nobody wanted it to happen. It was suggested that the Agreement should be amended so that libraries using other library systems could be members of the KLG too.

Thanks to the creation and operation of the KLG, Krakowlibraries have been increasingly integrating. Finding joint solutions to current problems and creating global strategies and certain visions of development will definitely translate into an improved operation of libraries and greater satisfaction of users – academics and students.
