Information on the Central Industrial District can be drawn from many studies and sources. Inestimable in this regard is the wide-ranging literature on the subject. It consists of monographs created over the decades, devoted not only to this largest undertaking of Poland in the interwar period, but also to individual industrial plants, urban centers, industries and the economy. Those interested in the history of CID are helped by the Archives of the Regional Museum in Stalowa Wola, which contains numerous materials devoted to, among other things, the Stalowa Wola Southern Works and Power Plant, which were established before the outbreak of World War II. Interesting sources can also be found in the resources of state and military archives: National Archive in Cracow (including branches in Nowy Sącz and Tarnów), State Archives in Rzeszów (including Sanok Branch), Przemyśl, Kielce (including Sandomierz Branch), Archive of New Records, Military Historical Bureau – Central Military Archives. These are documents produced in state institutions (civilian and military), local governments (central and regional entities), special bodies subordinate to civilian and military authorities, enterprises or industrial plants. A significant part of the materials that allow us to learn about the history of the CID can be found in the interwar professional periodic , popular and informational press and journalistic works. A number of archival materials can also be found in central and regional museums. An important part of the type of sources discussed are personal materials related to the history of specific individuals and families – they can be official (documents) or unofficial (biographies, memoirs, accounts, interviews). An important part of the heritage of the CID is also the extensive photographic documentation preserved to this day.
