This study looks into the concept of design thinking as a driver for the innovation of spaces and services in public libraries.

Voichița Dragomir - 2.0 tools for assessing the online impact of the researches’ results published on Web

Full text: ro

In the online environment, Library 2.0, as part of the hybrid library operating in the Web space, is a presence that demonstrates its usefulness through the resources, services and tools made available to consumers of information. Whether it is the new generation catalog, collective catalogs, institutional repositories or platforms for information discovery, users and non-users have access to valuable bibliographic and full-text resources, with the help of which they can successfully complete the process of search and retrieval of information. Regarding the evaluation of the resources found, especially in the research area, it is very important to have filters, which provide information on the scientific level of a work, its quality and the impact on the readers. To meet this requirement, Library 2.0 uses, on the one hand, traditional bibliometric indicators and, on the other hand, alternative indicators like Altmetric, PlumX, ImpactStory, PlosALM for measuring the online impact of research results.

Keywords: Library 2.0; Altmetric; PlumX; ImpactStory; PlosALM

Liana Elena Florea, Robert Coravu - Unconventional libraries in Romania

Full text: ro

The unconventional libraries have emerged as a result of initiatives by individuals, NGOs or other types of organizations in order to facilitate access to reading in a different context from the traditional, institutional one. In most cases, these are public access libraries consisting of collections of print books for borrowing available in unconventional spaces (cafes, malls, hotels, outdoors, etc.) or as itinerant collections. Their main function is not to preserve their collections, but to make them more accessible and more attractive to users. Unconventional libraries can be an alternative to the collections and services of conventional libraries but also a unique solution, when serving certain disadvantaged users in terms of access to conventional libraries.

The authors propose a division of unconventional libraries into three categories - libraries organized in unconventional spaces, mobile libraries and micro libraries - and present examples of unconventional libraries in Romania.

Information resources management

Elena Tîrziman - Digital resources: risks and vulnerabilities in their use and preservation

Full text: ro

The documentary and informational resources available on the web are of a wide typological variety: traditional documentary resources transposed into digital format, databases of different types, image resources, video resources, institutional and patrimonial funds (museums, archives, libraries, etc.), documents in digital format without printed equivalent; grey literature; presentation and thematic web sites, mass media; most diverse IT applications. The publications with digital content available on the web, either in free access or with restricted access by different criteria, has a number of effects on all actors and factors involved. There are implications for the published resources, on the personal data of authors, creators and users, on data of responsible institutional structures, on providers of Internet products and services, and on systems and software applications. The risks and vulnerabilities of the digital environment concern computer infrastructure, specific standards and rules, legal aspects, socio-economic aspects, digital behaviour, and information literacy. Each category of vulnerabilities requires specific approaches and strategies.

Aurelia Mircescu - The national bibliography - means of bibliographic control

Full text: ro

The national bibliography reflects the entire editorial production of a country. In the multitude of documents on different media, an efficient organization is needed so that the user can find the bibliographic resources useful for his researches. Thus, the bibliographic control intervenes, the one that standardizes the bibliographic descriptions in order to retrieve the documents in a catalog or a database. IFLA - The Bibliography Section assigns to the national bibliography the task of realizing the bibliographic control.

Mihaela Racovițeanu - Textbooks in the Romanian press in the times of the Great Union

Full text: ro

The study has an interdisciplinary character by approaching from a librarianship perspective the advertising of textbook, as a bibliographic unit, in the press published in the times of the Great Union of Romania. The objective is to identify the ways of promoting the textbooks in the pages of the representative newspapers and magazines and to analyze how this promotion was done. The following collections of newspapers were studied: Neamul Românesc (1918), Adevărul (1919-1921), Universul (1920) and the magazines: Ilustrația neamului nostru (1919-1921) and Bibliografia (1920-1921). The study of the newspapers and magazines seeks to identify, analyze and explain how the notion of textbook appears in the advertising sections, and provides an image of the topic of book in general, and school book or textbook in particular. The advertising in the press published in the times of the Great Union not only reflects the editorial product itself - the textbook, but also builds the cultural value of the product in the readers mind, thus contributing to the phenomenon of literacy and culture popularization.
