Streszczenie w języku angielskim:


 "Zbigniew Tucholski, The issues of the protection of the technical archives. The article analyses

issues connected with the condition of technical archival materials and their disposal in Poland. The

value of such documents is not respected due to the low level of awareness as regards the importance

of technology history in Poland. The article is an attempt to evaluate reasons for such a situation and

its historical conditioning. The article also presents the process of disposing of archival technical

documentation in the age of transformation and industrial privatisation. In the article, the author also

discusses the main reasons for the disposal of technical fi les having great value. The fact that most

fi les are disposed of or dispersed makes it more diffi cult to carry out research into the history of

technology. Utilitarian importance of archival documents has been presented by use of specifi c real

cases (e.g. the reason for faulty refurbishment of the cross-town railroad tunnel in Warsaw was the

lack of access to archival technical documentation). Another important reason for disposal of valuable

documents is a clause of confi dentiality (in such cases, documents are often disposed of without expert

assessment). The conclusions of the article regard: codifi cation of the methodology applied in the case

of processing archival technical and architectural documents, establishment of cooperation between

archivists and technology historians within the scope of trainings regarding issues connected with the

specifi city of archival technical documents, undertaking actions aiming at registration and digitisation

of technical archival materials kept in private collections, qualifi cation of confi dential documents to

be disposed by competent archivists, making it easier for rail historians to access the collection of

archival materials of PKP SA, taking actions aiming at registration, possible recovery and digitisation

of pre-war fonds (kept in archives abroad) including technical documentation of Polish state and local

government institutions."
