The University Library in Poznań conducts scientific and publishing activity bringing about the „Library” yearbook and scientific monographies as well as being the copublisher of „Comic notebooks” journal.

The University Library in Poznań is definitely a friendly and non-exclusive place, as proven by gaining the first price in IDOL Competition in 2019 organised by „Opportunities for the Blind” Foundation.
