Quantitative data are increasingly influencing the evaluation of the effectiveness of research and researchers. Citations may be the main metric to assess the quality and value of a publication, the number of which evaluates the academic impact. Who and how is citing Ukrainian scholarly journals? And speaking about citations, what are the main connections and trends? To study these aspects, we analyzed the citations of two “young” Ukrainian journals published by the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. The authors searched for articles published by two journals (Kyiv-Mohyla Humanities Journal and Kyiv-Mohyla Law and Politics Journal) in the citation databases Dimensions, Web of Science and Scopus. With the help of bibliometric analysis, such indicators as: citation; self-citation of the author; self-citation of the journal; citations from the author affiliated with the publisher of the journal; citations from the author who has a joint affiliation with the author of the article; Altmetric Attention Score. The purpose of the study is to distinguish the publications impact in various fields of knowledge in Open Access journals for researchers around the world, the growing number of citations for English-language publications, the importance of international publishing standards, correlations for self-citation, etc. An important aim is also to summarize the importance of journal indexing in different databases. The study showed that the number of journal citations is primarily influenced by the thematic relevance of published materials. Including, the subject of the article (volume, issue) has a strong correlation with the dynamics and geography of the citations. The number of self-citations of authors, self-citations of the journal, as well as citations from the joint affiliation with the author and publisher was insignificant. No significant impact on the number of citations was also found in the date of publication and its distribution on the Internet (Altmetric). Journal indexing in abstract, full-text databases and citation databases also affects their visibility and audience.

The article analyzes the positive foreign experience of implementing augmented reality (AR) library projects. It has been found out that the most common uses of augmented reality in libraries today are providing access to information products with augmented reality and their promotion, navigation of library space and resources, promoting user education through the creation of appropriate applications with learning materials and resources and simplification for the user assimilation of information due to the diversity and interactivity of its visual presentation, informing and providing access to cultural heritage sites, organizing tours and exhibitions. Given that the use of AR in libraries not only expands the range of services and resources but also positively affects its reputation as an interactive creative institution, open to users and innovation, AR technology is effective not only in the library service system but also in the marketing activities of the institution, helping to attract new users. Current approaches to the implementation of library projects using augmented reality technology are highlighted. Their assistance in strengthening corporate culture, inter-institutional ties, and civil society is substantiated. It has been proved that the AR applications created as a result of project implementation operate on the principle of integrated information products, which allow the user to access distributed information from one access point via mobile phone, integrating not only information of the virtual space of the Internet environment but also real, physical, space. The advantages of AR implementation in the library have been determined, among which: budget realization, easy integration with available technologies, and promotion of interactivity of library service. The need for professional development of librarians and the organization of training courses on the use of immersive technologies in library activities is emphasized.

The article is devoted to the analysis of information literacy programmes developed by libraries of higher education institutions in Hong Kong and Ukraine. The application of such theoretical and empirical methods as an analysis of sources, the method of external observation over the foreign and Ukrainian experience of the information literacy programmes developing, as well as a prognostic method for summarising, allowed to reveal similarities and differences in the content and forms of information literacy programmes implemented at Hong Kong and Ukrainian universities. Different stages of implementation of information literacy programmes by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Library during the last two decades are highlighted. The content of information literacy programmes provided by the libraries of 4 Ukrainian universities in general and the scientific library of the Kyiv National University of Culture and Arts (KNUCaA), in particular, is reviewed. It has been found out such similar characteristics of information literacy programmes of libraries that were analysed as using of traditional forms (lectures, practical exercises, instructions, video lessons) to form the skills and abilities for the effective information search, analytical processing, organisation, evaluation, and use of this information. It has been found out that, unlike Hong Kong, the introduction of certified and online information literacy courses by Ukrainian universities libraries is isolated cases. There is also no experience in testing students’ knowledge before studies of information literacy. Testing is usually done after completing the information literacy programmes, but these tests are not mandatory and only recommended. The authors hope that the experience of the CUHK Library (Hong Kong) in the implementation of the “Immersion Programme”, the UGCIL project, and InfoLit for U will be useful for the Ukrainian scientific library community, considering that libraries of higher education institutions in Ukraine have also started to develop similar programmes and modules. In particular, the interactive online guide “Music Documents in the KNUCaA Scientific Library” is an example of a modern approach to the formation of first-year students’ information literacy, their acquaintance with the scientific library, its services, and resources, basic types of documents, an electronic search algorithm.

The amount increasing of produced information raises the issue of its effective perception and assimilation and increases attention to graphic information products as effective communication tools, including, in particular, comic books, and library practices built around comics. The article is devoted to the disclosure of modern domestic library experience in activities related to the comics use, outlining the system of service formed around comics in the libraries of Ukraine. Based on the study of funds and official websites of domestic libraries, professional publications, media materials, and the use of a set of research methods – especially bibliographic and heuristic search methods, analysis of content – it was found out that comic books are presented in the funds of domestic libraries of different levels and types: from large national-level institutions to small district book collections. The beginning of the comics history in the libraries of Ukraine dates back to the 20-the 30s of the twentieth century and today we can already talk about the formation of a comprehensive innovative library service around comics as an information product, the main components of which are the organization of educational events dedicated to comics, informing about the receipt of comics in the library, organizing exhibitions of comics, compiling lists and preparing bibliographic indexes and organization of meetings with authors and publishers of comics, workshops, and competitions. It has been found that comics as an information product is not only the subject of work of domestic librarians but also an effective tool for solving educational, social, and internal narrow professional tasks to promote the library profession and library business by them.

The article is devoted to substantiation from the standpoint of intercommunication as a social practice of the essential advantage of reading paper books and the relevance of book practices of the library service. The methodological tools of the study were based on the methods of hypothesis, included and external observation, extrapolation, survey, comparative and analytical methods, the use of which, along with the formulation of the general idea of the study created the basis for understanding the book as an object that represents the author, characters, and texts and can perform the function not only of an information source, but also of the narrator, and thus of the subject of communication; made it possible to identify common and special features of reading electronic and paper books, to draw conclusions about the priority format for young people reading literary texts, to identify modern scientific approaches to studying the role of books and reading for personal development. Based on the analysis of current professional publications, data on the study of reader behavior conducted in autumn 2018 by the cultural and publishing project “Chitomo” together with the digital publishing house Gutenbergz and the Razumkov Center ("Reading in Ukraine", 2018), the results of a survey of students majoring in 029 “Information, library and archival business”, which was carried out during 14.01.2021–14.02.2021, the relevance of maintaining the practice of reading books in paper format is proved, the formation of the space of communication as a social practice, based on the functioning of the paper book as a subject of communication, has been substantiated. The topic of such communication is both the text printed in the book and the whole set of historical, social and socio-cultural meanings associated with the authors of the books, their publishers and / or former owners. It has been found that e-books, being effective communicators, lose subjectivity, which creates risks for reading-oriented people to weaken communication and socialization skills, and thus – actualizes the need to maintain access to real bookshelves and paper books in the library. space. In the conditions of needs of access to electronic texts, dynamics of social processes, social mobility, the library remains a place that allows preserving and reproducing important for the formation and socialization of personality social practice of interpersonal communication, in particular by creating conditions for real communication with paper books.

Стаття сфокусована на спробі дослідити особливості взаємин «читач» – «книга», себто сприйняття читачем не твору, а саме книги як рівноправного співрозмовника у часи італійського Ренесансу. Ця спроба ґрунтується на зауваженнях концептуального характеру, які стосуються функцій і статусу тексту як такого (Ю. М. Лотман) та власне книжкової комунікації (В. А. Маркова). Підґрунтям для висновків щодо статусу книги у тогочасній комунікації є аналіз згадок про книгу (описів, звернень) як про одухотворену особу та спілкування з нею, які містяться у текстах літературних творів різних жанрів (поетична лірика, листи, приклади агіографії, трактати італійських гуманістів тощо), авторами яких є представники давньоримської, середньовічної та ренесансної італійської культури.Метою статті є доповнення сформованої дослідниками схеми книжкової комунікації рівнями «читач» – «книга» та «читач» – «автор». Обґрунтовується поява та закріплення у свідомості читача асоціації автора з його твором, отже, з книгою як носієм його твору. Доведено, що комунікацію за зазначеними рівнями, з огляду, зокрема, на емоційну забарвленість, можна вважати спілкуванням, відповідно, «книга» і «книга-автор» постають суб’єктами спілкування.На підставі результатів аналізу творів відомих представників Ренесансу доведено, що, крім передачі інформації, книга стає джерелом емоційних переживань і мотивує до певних дій, про що читач повідомляє книгу, в тому числі й через постановку питань до неї, тобто до її автора, що дає підстави стверджувати про участь книги в кондиційному та мотиваційному спілкуванні. З’ясовано, що на формування ставлення до книги як до співрозмовника вплинула екстраполяція на неї особистості автора твору, що сприяло певному одухотворенню книги в свідомості читача.Перші ознаки набуття книгою статусу суб’єкта спілкування можна помітити задовго до Ренесансу, а саме – у Давньому Римі, в доробку Марка Тулія Цицерона та деяких пізніших авторів. Культура середньовіччя не дає прикладів, які дозволяють визнати за книгою в ті часи статус суб’єкта комунікації. Ренесанс, навпаки, часто та доволі різноманітно використовує мотив спілкування з книгою як з одухотвореною особою. У пізніші часи потреба в інформації (в широкому сенсі) спричинила перехід до т. зв. прагматичного читання, внаслідок чого ставлення читача до книги набуває певною мірою споживацьких рис, стає раціональним, розсудливим і тверезим. Це на досить тривалий час зробило спілкування із книгою неактуальними.
