At the first phase of the project ‘Copyright Policy of Libraries and Other Cultural Institutions’, an extensive literature search and review was carried out. As a result, a thematic bibliography which includes about 3200 records, titled as Copyright Publications, was prepared and published. This bibliography covers scientific publications, such as monographs and articles, on copyright related issues within the cultural institutions context. A search in library catalogs, publishers’ catalogs, scientific databases and open repositories was carried out to locate and access related publications for the period of 2003-2013.

At the second phase of the project, based on the literature review, a survey instrument "Copyright Literacy of Specialists from Libraries and Other Cultural Institutions" was developed and a multi-national survey was conducted. Bulgaria, Croatia and Turkey were involved in the project at the beginning and surveys were conducted in these countries during July-October 2013. In 2014 France joined in the project and the same survey was conducted in France during January-March 2014.
