The electronic library (e-library) of the Information Technologies Institute of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences is expected to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2014, according to a message from the institute.

Currently, works are underway for improving the intellectual information service of the e-library and its integration with the world's leading libraries.

The institute will consider the opportunities for commercialization of e-library services.

The e-library will be based on the platform of the AzScienceNet scientific computer network.
