Lower Silesian jobbing and occasional prints from 1945–1946 from the collection of the Wrocław University Library
Within the framework of its statutory informative operations the Wrocław University Library has from its beginning collected unconventional library items: Lower Silesian jobbing and occasional prints. The original collection was assembled for the benefit of the Wrocław academic community and its beginnings date back to 1945. Documents published in 1945–1946 depict in great detail the difficult, turbulent process of settlement in the Western Territories and building of a new Polish community in Lower Silesia. Jobbing and occasional prints constitute a unique part of the local cultural heritage; they are valuable and prominent reminders of local history, original sources of information and interesting research subjects for many fields of science. The collection assembled in the Wrocław University Library gives contemporary residents of Lower Silesia a sense of being “rooted” in their local homeland, and makes them aware of historical continuity and regional affiliation.
