Abstract:This paper traces computerization in Polish research libraries, from microfilming initiatives in the immediate post–World War II era to the inauguration of digitization programs from the 1990s onward. It describes the initiatives taken by the new, independent Poland during the 1990s to develop an information society, including library networking, computerization, and digitization, and credits the work of the Mellon Foundation in bringing changes to Polish libraries.
