Królicza Nora 2.0 - List do bibliotekarzy cyfrowych

Temat postu: List do bibliotekarzy cyfrowych
I just want to take this opportunity to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading your on-line publications from Washington, DC. I have read hundreds of them at several different digital libraries in Poland.

We used the Digital Libraries of Poland for many different phases of our effort to publish the second volume (on ghettos) in our series, Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos. Some times the questions for which we sought answers were quite obscure.The Skorowidz for the II RP, for example, became one of our most important reference guides, because we were required to provide the pre-World War II name, as it was in 1938, for the gmina, powiat, and województwo for each of the places where the Germans established ghettos. Kraśnik is one thing, but try finding this information, for example, about pre-World War II Urzędów or Piaski (the one now in Belarus), etc., etc. Was it the Uhrusk gmina? or the Wola Uhruska gmina? We were able to find this information quickly, and to get the geography correct, because the Skorowidz was available on-line at your library.

Documents from World War II, regional newspapers from the war, and the many small, regional scientific journals available at the various electronic libraries aided our task. I can't tell you how surprised I was to find an article about the Jewish community of Zwierzyniec, for example, published in a small, local history journal. Materials, particularly secondary works, about these small communities are not available at the Library of Congress or at the United States Holocaust Museum library (both of which have impressive collections).

I also read some fascinating memoirs, published in rather obscure local historical journals. They were captivating.

I could also tell you about how some of the small regional newspapers, including one available at the digital library of Chełm, contain some important information that if someone used them they could turn around historians' ideas about specific war-time events. But, this information is probably is too specific.

I do not know how many American scholars use your libraries, but to me they are a phenomenal resource for anyone with research interests in Poland.

It has been a pleasure using your libraries.

W ogóle proponowałbym przenieść cały system BC, wraz z twórcami, do USA. Szłoby to zupełnie inaczej ;-) .

Nie przepadam za Ameryką, ale jak widzę, co się u nas ostatnio dzieje (feudalizm w wydaniu rosyjskim)- jestem ZA ;-)

To w ogóle jest dziwne zjawisko, bo z jednej strony wszyscy narzekają, a z drugiej ten kraj nie może się opędzić od imigrantów. ;-)
