This decline has multiple causes, such as &nbsp;the change of users' expectations and needs, the universities switch from exclusively on-site work and teaching to remote or more flexible schedules, the availability of alternative sources of information, the use of new technologies (social networks, mobile technologies), the preference for anytime and remote access from personal devices, the demand for greater compatibility and interoperability of systems, and the transformation of library user from consumer into content creator. Thus, this research aims to study the information-seeking behavior of college students in the context of traditional and electronic resources). Urquhart and Rowley's model of information-seeking behavior will be applied along with Wilson's model, to identify the factors that influence information-seeking behavior: the design of information resources, the educational infrastructure, the organizational culture, the availability and access constraints, the information culture, the search strategy, the support and training, the pedagogy, the behavior of teachers regarding information, and the study discipline and curriculum. Nonetheless, the article will explore information literacy skills and the barriers to accessing and using them: cultural aspects related to teaching and learning styles, language proficiency and digital culture.</p> 2023-06-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Romanian Library Association Does ChatGPT influence research fields in the same way? A Scientometric analyses 2023-09-27T19:28:40+03:00 Angela Repanovici Ionela Maria Barsan <p class="western" align="justify"><span style="font-family: Times New Roman, serif;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span lang="en-US">Artificial intelligence has invaded our academic space since ChatGPT left. Students were interested in seeing the potential of many debates. The authors conducted a scientometric research to identify the areas in which the researchers published articles on Chat GPT. The Clarivate Analytics database was used, search by ChatGPT keyword. The 57 results were analysed using VOS Viewer. There are many PRO opinions on the use of Chat GPT in education, medicine, mathematics and other sciences.</span></span></span></p> 2023-06-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Romanian Library Association Research and cultural metadata exposed using APIs: steps on the interoperability road 2023-11-12T19:10:07+02:00 Nicolaie Constantinescu <p>The wealth of data available to the researchers and to the curious citizen seems limitless today. For this reason tools able to retrieve and put together pieces of useful data are in growing need. This study is looking into Application Programming Interfaces as means to establish an ecosystem fostering data interoperability for persons and machines. The research and culture landscape is in a continuous need for accessing to data and metadata. For this reason, a set of the most representative service providers were investigated through the filter of data accessibility, and how the data provided fit the needs of possibly machine-assisted tools. The providers are well established actors in the scholarly communication arena with a host of some from the culture heritage field. A supplementary set of trusted repositories which are recipients of CoreTrustSeal (CTS) were investigated in searching for interoperability extensions via APIs.</p> 2023-06-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Romanian Library Association
