The National Library of Poland (Biblioteka Narodowa) and OCLC have signed an agreement to add 1.3 million Polish library records to WorldCat.
“Biblioteka Narodowa is looking forward to the great worldwide visibility that WorldCat can offer,” said Dr. Tomasz Makowski, Director General of the National Library of Poland. “And of course we’re very happy with the efficiencies we can achieve by using WorldCat for copy cataloguing.”
There are currently some 1.4 million Polish records already in WorldCat. This new agreement with the National Library of Poland will nearly double the number of Polish records in the database.
“We are very pleased to be able to enrich WorldCat with additional Polish content,” said Eric van Lubeek, Managing Director, OCLC EMEA. “Polish communities and other researchers around the world who are interested in Polish language literature, history, culture and other important and useful information will certainly benefit from this addition to WorldCat.”
