I believe there is no need to convince anyone how important it is to identify and record the cultural heritage of past centuries. In Poland, there are several independent projects on recording foreign Polonica (library and archival collections of Polish provenance, currently outside of Poland). Unfortunately, these projects are run without cooperation between research teams and institutions, and joint coordination has not been considered. I devoted a separate paper to this matter and it is ready to be published. Equally important is the recording of foreign heritage located in our country - in Polish libraries, archives, museums and other collections. Unfortunately, this issue has not yet been met with broad sympathy, and thus far remains largely unrecognized.
