For years, Z-Library has been empowering students and educational institutions by offering unrestricted access to an extensive collection of over 14 million academic and scientific digital resources. Complementing this, we’ve established over 150 distribution points across 42 countries to make physical literature readily available.
Curious about the institutions that incorporate Z-Library into their educational landscape and eager to comprehend their utilization patterns, we delved into the data from our international community. The findings are in, and we’re excited to share this comprehensive report!
Getting to Know the Z-Library Community: How We Collected and Analyzed Data
Before diving into statistics, let us first discuss how we gathered data about the Z-Library. We will also explain how we categorized university users.
When collecting and analyzing our data, we determined where our users were from through the domain zones where our users’ email addresses were located. If, for example, a user’s email says “*@utoronto.ca,” we can conclude that the user is either an employee or a student of the University of Toronto.
This data collection method is quite reliable, and we are confident in the statistics
gathered. Utilizing this method, we discovered that our platform is being used by over 30,000 educational institutions worldwide. These institutions span all academic levels – universities, colleges, and schools.
We have a notably large number of users from China. In fact, the number was so great that we decided to combine the largest universities from this country into one line, in the graph below.
It should be noted that the values and graphs above are conservative estimates since not all who use our service register with their university email addresses. Still, these estimates are reliably accurate and provide a valuable glimpse into how Z-Library is helping scholars and institutions worldwide.
Who Makes Up Our Global Community?
We are very pleased to announce that Z-Library is helping over 600,000 students and teachers worldwide. These statistics paint a powerful picture: Z-Library truly is a valuable resource in the worldwide scholastic community!
We are proud to assist users from the following countries (listed in no specific order):
- South Africa
- United Kingdom
Our global reach is not limited to these countries! View the graph below to see a complete list of countries and note how many users rely on Z-Library for their resource needs. (Due to a high concentration of users located in Taiwan, we have highlighted Taiwan for the purposes of this report. There are no political reasons involved in us doing so.)
What is Next For The Z-Library Community?
At Z-Library, we care about providing books and other resources for students, teachers, and institutions all over the world. That is why seeing the growth of the Z-Library community is an exciting and encouraging development.
So, what is next for the Z-Library community? We have established the first physical libraries, or “Z-Points,” in 42 countries. We are eagerly looking forward to establishing our physical libraries in even more locations worldwide.
Additionally, we have introduced many features for our members in recent months. For example, users can exchange physical books with other members. Users will soon be able to send books by mail to be borrowed by other members.
Why are these developments so exciting? We desire to make literature accessible to all who wish to learn, and we thank you, the Z-Library community, for your continued support of this goal!
