The Cooperative Library Network Berlin-Brandenburg is the second library network in Germany to receive the Open Library Badge 2020, which makes it one of 14 recipients of this award.

The Open Library Badge initiative aims to encourage libraries to pursue the concept of openness in their activities and services. It is awarded by a jury of volunteers from the library sector who are committed to openness.

KOBV is involved in the development of OPUS 4 and DeepGreen open source software. It offers selected training courses (e.g. FOLIO and KOHA workshops) and involves users through user meetings. Above all, KOBV is committed to making all publications and presentations created by KOBV staff freely available.
