Polish Sources in RISM since 2017

The introduction of the RISM-specific Muscat cataloging program at the end of 2016 was met with great interest in the Polish working groups and cataloging projects. Since then, many new contributors have been trained and more than 5,000 additional records from Poland have been added to the RISM database. New collaborative projects have been started, such as with the Chopin Institute and the RISM working group at Poznań University.

Projects at the Chopin Institute:
The collection of manuscripts from Częstochowa described in Paweł Podejko's thematic catalogue (PodejkoK 1992) has been completely in RISM since 2017. In addition, contributors at the Chopin Institute are adding to and correcting the older entries and cataloging the missing printed music editions.
PL-CZ (ca. 300 records)

The historical music sources are being cataloged at the two Chopin Institute sites, the Chopin Library and the Chopin Museum.

The working group at the Warsaw University Library has been working with RISM for many decades. The very large collection has a high proportion of materials with Wroclaw provenances,which are constantly added to RISM.

It is always worth looking at the RISM catalog from time to time to find the latest from these projects. Many collections are still in the process of being cataloged.
