Our approach is unique, as the official activity reports published by the National Library are lacking the qualitative studies which would have helped establishing the directions of development of the services dedicated to different types of users. The quantitative reports officially reveal that the users tend to favor the free reading spaces in spite of the reading rooms. These statistics lead us to the idea that the library must operate changes in its public policies, considering new services and healthy conditions for 54,000 free spaces users per year.

More and more in Romania the need to have well-trained teaching and administrative staff in order to transform schools, universities and libraries into inclusive environments is felt. Often, not only the material base is missing (for example: access technologies), but a large part of staff also feels that they do not have the skills necessary to ensure effective communication with people with disabilities and their families. This research aims to investigate the training needs of teaching staff and librarians, both in schools and universities. (Daniela Popa, Angela Repanovici)

The article surprises elements of novelty and needs in the activity of scientific research and communication, identifies the needs and their practical settlement. We identified the needs and behavior of the academic staff involved in research and we analyzed trends in contemporary research. (Ionela Maria Bârsan)
