Wroclaw University Library (WUL) has the staff team with long-standing experience in the digitisation of printed items as well as processing and then presentation of digital objects.

In WUL since the year 2000 the digitisation of own physical resources has been started, then in 2005 the digital library (the Digital Library of University of Wroclaw) has been initiated and in 2013/2014 – the university repository. All these works are carried out by the digitisation department possessing its own digitisation workshop and by the computerization department which cooperates with it. Owing to the appropriate policy of human resources development, purchases of optical & electronic equipment and computers (hardware & software) as well as participation in many European projects the Wroclaw University Library has at its disposal experienced staff and technological base that enable it the cooperation in the framework of the Impact Centre of Competence.
