Due to the 100th deathday of the Polish first Nobel prize winner, Henryk Sienkiewicz, the year 2016 was announced as the Sienkiewicz’s Year. Because of that we wanted to introduce literary output of the seer, very important for the Polish history, and also other objects connected with him, shared by digital libraries belonging to the Digital Libraries Federation. Firstly the essence – literary works, as well novels as narratives are available in portal Wolnelektury.pl (e.g. Fire in the Steppe, In Desert and Wilderness, Płomyk, Sąd Ozyrysa, U bramy raju etc.). In a few digital libraries we can find also old elaborations nad comments for Sienkiewicz’s books. For example in the Pomeranian Digital Library, among others there are such publications as the literary analysis of Quo Vadis? from 1925, Henryk Sienkiewicz: (Henryk Sienkiewicz, prototype of Zagłoba, subjective element in Sienkiewicz’s Trilogy, Polish army in his books) and Forgotten and unedited works from 1922 Whereas the MCSU Digital Library shares a comment for With Fire and Sword (genesis, characters) from 1927 and the biography of Henryk Sienkiewicz: life and works on the 100th anniversary of birth (1946). Other publications about life and output of the writer can be found in the: Podlaska Digital Library (Henryk Sienkiewicz: spiritual leader of the nation), the Digital Library AJD (Henryk Sienkiewicz as a witness of civilisation’s end) or in the Digital Library of the Scientific Institutes (Did Sienkiewicz want to recreate the historical truth?).
Apart from the literary documentation, in stocks of Polish digital libraries we can also find a significant photographic and graphic documentation concerning national prophet. In the National Digital Library POLONA there are portraits (fotografia 1892 r., wood engraving from 1891) and the National Digital Museum in Warsaw shares many photographs of Sienkiewicza in places joined with his inhabitancy, family and free time.
