"Zdzisław C h m i e l e w s k i, Archive science towards problems of the mass character ofrecords. Systemic changes that took place in Europe after the World War I and, in particular,World War II, manifested, among others, in the total reconstruction of the system of theadministration of social and economic life, consequently influenced the process of recordcreation: they forced the introduction of new mechanisms to regulate the development of themass production of records. Archives urgently had to acquire enormous masses of recordsdue to the liquidation, unavoidable for these transformations, of many offices and institutionsconsidered redundant. Records related to economic issues were becoming a separate problem,since after the implementation of reforms in many countries (land reforms or nationalizationof industry), records were to be filed according to the principles different than up to thatmoment. Archivists faced the necessity to change basic criteria of evaluating and weedingrecords, as well as to work out a necessary, theoretical justification for any further activities.In mid 50’s, studies devoted to this problem usually defined as mass records, were intensified,in particular in Western Europe and the US. The problem of mass records, and consequently,the need to find rational remedies, released new creative powers among archivists; it alsofocused the interest of international archival bodies. The article is an effort to present themost common ideas on this subject appearing in the world literature, and prevailing duringthe proceedings of congresses on archives. It also refers to publications confirming thedirections of archivists’ search to find the most effective methods of dealing with fastARCHIWISTYKA WOBEC PROBLEMU MASOWOS´CI AKT WSPO´ ŁCZESNYCH 67growing record and non-record documentation. The author also emphasizes that political andsystemic transformations of the end of the 80’s and beginning of the 90’s allowed archivistsfrom Central and Eastern Europe, including archivists from Poland, to participate moredirectly in this exchange of thoughts and ideas."     Źródło: Archeion, t. 100
