From Classic (Analogue) to Digital Forms of Cultural Heritage Protection in Poland

Barbara Prus , Karol Król , Krzysztof Gawroński , Edward Sankowski , Józef Hernik


The aim of this article is to present research about some aspects of material entities that are part of the cultural heritage of Poland. The article examines characteristics of protection of this cultural heritage as expressed in activities dating from the early nineteenth century to modern times and indeed extending to the present moment which is much more digitally framed. Such activities now include some use of digital resources. In this article, special attention is paid to the fact that currently in Poland the classic analogue form of monuments registration dominates at the national, regional and local levels. A more developed digital historical monument database has great potential for progress in various ways. Apart from the fundamental function of gathering and recording information about cultural heritage, such a database also has a large information-disseminating, educational, and marketing potential. It can be used to create new digital resources for communication and presentation of cultural heritage, and for planning purposes.
