Booksellers’ support schemes
EKEBI provides free access to the BIBLIONET databases to facilitate better organisation of bookshops (http://www.biblionet.gr/) .
Just a few hours of training are sufficient to show professionals the wealth of possibility that the BIBLIONET database offers. Once every three months depending on demand, seminars are organised for professionals as part of the Book Workshop.
