At present, the Polish Internet Library offers more then 15.000 titles, mainly compulsory school textbooks and Polish classical literature. New publications are constantly being added to the collection. The complete PIL catalogue will include academic publications, publications for the blind people, sheet music, maps, paintings, photographs and other graphics and scientific periodicals. There will also be scientific and documentary films, museums’ resources, theatre performances etc. The publications placed on PIL website can be used free of charge.
The main goal of creating PIL is to grant equal access opportunity to publications for the inhabitants of small towns and villages and other areas distant from academic and cultural centers, where a computer with Internet access may be the only possibility of contact with scientific and cultural achievements. The PIL is implemented by the Ministry of Scientific Research and Information Technology.
