The Polish Music Information Centre was developed in 2001 from the Library of the Polish Composers’ Union - Polish Contemporary Music Documentation Centre, which for fifty years collected books, scores and records as well as information about contemporary Polish composers and their works. In 1998, the Library became Poland’s representative in the International Association of Music Information Centres (IAMIC). The Polish Music Information Centre has taken over tis role while at the same time continuing all the forms of the Library’s activity. The Centre’s director, Mieczysław Kominek (Ph.D.) is a musicologist, sound engineer, journalist, critic and commentator.
PMIC collects and makes available books, periodicals and other publications dealing with Polish contemporary music. The Polish Music Information Centre:
We do our best to answer every query and tackle all the presented issues, including those which do not concern directly our central area of interest - Polish contemporary music. We also hope to provoke such questions by promoting Polish music worldwide by means of all the modern technologies available. But, although we recognise the value of these technologies, we also cherish books and respect the silence of the library. We invite you therefore not only to our Internet site, but also to our Library, overlooking the magnificent Old Town Square in Warsaw.
