  • Slawomir SZYLLER, 20 December 2019 | 7 September 2009

    In recent years, several dozen virtual (digital) libraries have come online in Poland. In general, they are linked to traditional libraries, and some of these are discussed on the page General libraries. To be found below are a number of others, put together by other institutions or by groups of libraries.

    This site presents works preserved in at Poznan: the university library, state archives, library of the Polish academy of sciences at Kórnik and others. Among the several hundreds of manuscripts a few are medieval. [1].

    [1This digital library uses the driver dLibra, which is very popular in Poland. This is in some ways convenient, in that the mode of operation is always the same, but it also inconvenient, since before you can view images, you will need to install the programme dLibra (which is, however, free).

    [2To search specifically for manuscripts, choose Advanced Search, Type and type in the word ‘rekopis’ (i.e. manuscript).
