Card catalogues serve as a guide to the collections: alphabetical and systematic catalogues as well as electronic databases: of books, which include aquisitions from the last 15 years, journals and Ph.D. dissertations defended in IBE between 1966 and 2009.

A new database was created in Prolib system cataloguing English-language literature for the research projects conducted by  IBE under the auspices of the EU. Based on national and international electronic databases, the library staff provides bibliographic information on Polish and foreign education related literature.
