    This study aims to offer a global image of the top Romanian Open Access journals. After the identification of the Romanian journals included in the most widely-used bibliometric databases (Web of Science and Scopus), some characteristics, such as their inclusion in DOAJ and/or ROAD, the use of Open Access licenses and the existence of processing/submission charges are analysed. (Robert Coravu, Mihai Constantinescu)

    The study is investigative in nature aiming to extract the traits out of the trends leading to a possible specialisation having a broad scope in searching possible career paths for librarians in data science. (...) Out of many possible roles envisaged for the librarians, there are a few which trigger some focus on the future skills needed to be acquired. These possible scenarios involve data management planning guidance, data stewardship and curation, and data visualisation. (Nicolaie Constantinescu)

    One can notice a growing interest regarding the discovery and the highlighting of the forms of cultural resistance in the 1950-1989 period, especially the highlighting of the importance and significations of the post-war Romanian exile, in the communist period, based on the conservation and development of the interior existence together with keeping the modernist reaction regarding the autonomy of the aesthetics to its political insubordination. The Romanian Library of Freiburg constitutes an essential starting point in highlighting the types of cultural resistance of the exile.

    The paper aims to focus on the UDC auxiliary tables and their contribution to improved expressiveness of the subjects represented by the UDC main class numbers. Our purpose is to demonstrate that despite the limitations of an analytico-synthetic classification system designed more than one hundred years ago, successive developments of the scheme along with the consistent updating of its functionalities enables it to be successfully used in modern information retrieval systems both from bibliographic and non-bibliographic domain.

    In the literature on the protection of documents, pre-digitization represents the set of investigations and preventive-curative interventions performed in library environments, especially in the morphological structure of documents, in order to investigate, stop and eradicate the complex of identified degradation factors, of physical, mechanical, chemical and biological etiology. In the case of the Library of “Ştefan cel Mare” National College, Suceava, pre-digitization is the essential stage of preparation of the documents, in order to carry out digitization operations under appropriate conditions. (V. Deac, C. Dominte, I. Burz)

    Scientific communication can be achieved only by approving new models that remove barriers to access to information (financial, legal and technical) as well as barriers to information sharing. The study (...) demonstrates the rather weak involvement of Romanian higher education institutions in policy making and involvement in Open Access publishing. (I.M. Bârsan)

    The paper reflects on a few scenarios and brings practical, inexpensive and innovative approaches in terms of reference management. (...) Online reference managers such as EndNote and Mendeley can easily manage the results retrieved from the well-known scientific databases Web of Science and Scopus. Moreover, these results can be automatically added in ORCiD record or Publish or Perish software by export-import actions and this way researchers can easily populate their scientific profile or compare metrics.

    In a multi-ethnic city, cultural and educational institutions carry that multi-ethnic, multicultural mark. We set out to monitor and analyse to what extent this phenomenon manifests itself in terms of collections, staff, services provided, users, as well as cultural programmes and European projects. (M. Zănescu)

    The paper represents a practical application developed and applied in library environments in order to establish the technology for the use of natural nanoparticles to protect the info-cultural goods and to maintain the hygiene in the library environments. (V. Deac, I. Burz, A. Deac)
