Hope this is of interest to the list.
Apologies for cross-posting. 

Eight Polish academic libraries are subscribing to WorldCat and 
FirstSearch following a successful pilot. The libraries all contribute to 
NUKAT (Narodowy Uniwersalny Katalog Centralny), Poland’s national union 
catalogue which serves around 60 academic and research libraries and 900 
librarians.  NUKAT records were added to WorldCat last year for the first 
time.

In 2006, a large proportion of the NUKAT union catalogue of records and 
holdings was added to WorldCat, building the world’s largest and most 
comprehensive database of bibliographic and ownership information by a 
further 350,000 records.  NUKAT contributed records on items published in 
Poland or in Polish, making the contribution an important one both for 
libraries within the country seeking interlibrary loans and for any 
institution wishing to develop their collections of Polish materials. 

Dr Henryk Hollender, Director, Lublin University of Technology Library, 
adds, “WorldCat is a novelty in Poland, and the solution adopted seems 
pretty inventive and elegant.  Next  to all the imaginable general 
applications (including showing our professors the books they authored in 
the libraries all over the world, listed scrupulously one by one), it 
opens a wide field for analysis and comparisons for cataloguing managers, 
collection building specialists and higher education administrators. For 
us librarians it is an example of best cataloguing practice. With WorldCat 
accessible at a click, librarians can easily include electronic resources, 
media or special collections items in their files. And the files can no 
longer do without the access points and advanced search techniques that 
WorldCat offers.”
