PAU works with the PAN Institute of History to compile and publish the Dictionary of Polish Biography (DPB). From 1935-1949, the DBP was published by PAU. Subsequently, its continuation was halted for ideological reasons. It was revived only after the Polish October of 1956. It was then that a dedicated office for producing the DPB was established as part of the PAN Department of Documentation. The dictionary resumed publication in 1958 and continues to be issued to this day.
The DPB office was raised to the rank of a department in 1975.
Since 1999, PAU has contributed to compiling the dictionary by making 193 m2 of floorspace available free of charge to the Department for the Dictionary of Polish Biography.
