One of the priorities of the National Library during 2020, a year that coincided with the 100th anniversary of this institution, was the digitalization of archive works. The responsibility of the Bibliography Sector in Albanian National Library shows that during a year a total of about 850 works have been digitized

 "We are currently working to make unique copies available (those that are a single copy), to preserve both the physical copy, but also to make it available to the public. We are also working on the periodical before 1944, while the digitalization of newspapers is in the end in accordance with the copyright ", says the head of the Bibliography at the National Library, Brunilda Tahiri.
The reader can consult online 234 manuscripts, 176 antiques, 78 albanological maps, 119 periodical titles and 365 book titles. Whereas, there has been a digitization of book bibliographies in Albanian since 1959.

The number of online visitors for 2020 is 10,800, but there are also loyal readers of this institution.
