    The main scope of this study is the evaluation of the research performance in Computer Science in the Republic of Moldova between 2013 and 2018, through the prism of Moldovan authors scientific publications. The specific objectives of this study:

    - Examining the dynamics of national and international publications in Computer Science between 2013-2018;

    - Examining the distribution of publications in ICT by scientific field;

    - Identifying top ICT researchers and top ICT research institutions from the Republic of Moldova, with the main goal to ensure smart specialization in this research area;

    - Analysing publication collaborations of Moldovan authors in the Computer Science field. (Nelly Țurcan, Ion Coșuleanu, Mihai Grecu, Rodica Cujba)

    The evaluation and protection in time of the valuable digitized collections of documents from libraries (archives and museums) represents methodologically, but above all practically, a field of document protection with recent data requirements and structures, as a result of speeding up the digitization of valuable documents on organic support. The transfer of information from organic support to digital (electronic) support involves the development and use of cutting-edge techniques and methodologies, a modern infrastructure, as well as a flawless training of the specialists involved in this very demanding activity.

    Despite its overwhelming popularity as the leading social network site in the past few years, the educational value that Facebook provides has not been fully determined, and results are still contradictory. Moreover, systematic reviews about the educational usage of Facebook are still lacking some aspects. This article provides a critical overview of the international studies focusing on Facebook as educational environment, carried out in order to examine if and how this popular social network may contribute to teaching and learning within formal education.

    In this paper, the authors report findings from a survey in Romania and interviews in Norway, on what innovative issues students are imagining in future libraries. Among the trends students and academics are foreseeing are found green libraries, including green information literacy, bibliometrics/scientometrics, library as "home", makerspace (3D-printing) and libraries as centers for documentation, for academic writing and for other necessary skills. (Ane Landoy, Angela Repanovici)

    Considering that there is no separate information literacy course adopted in Department of Comparative Literature and Library Science, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Sarajevo curricula, but the information literacy-related content is distributed across curricula, the main purpose of this paper was to obtain insight in students’ perception of their information literacy competencies, to detect to what degree student improve their information literacy skills during studies, what possible difficulties they face in acquiring information literacy competencies in above explained circumstances. (Lejla Hajdarpašić, Džejla Khattab)

    We shall present in the ongoing a few arguments in favor of separating the library collections, look at some membership criteria for sets of documents to particular collections and tackle the problem of customized access to them. All considerations will be illustrated with examples from real academic library catalogues.(Victoria Frâncu)

    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)
