Library and librarians in the next twenty years, or waiting of singularity
Libraries’ functions in the era of digital communications are defined; the need for fundamentally new approach toward library services to reflect digital society demands is substantiated. The author concludes that, in the radically new circumstances, libraries will offer complex of user-oriented services relevant to the society’s interests. The libraries will cease to be institutions for document arrays acquisition, storage and delivery for public use, and become the open innovative and education sites to support every form of gaining knowledge and competences enabling users to adapt to continuously changing environment. The author suggests several measures to preserve the social institution of libraries in the circumstances of high technologies exponential growth. The author emphasizes that the libraries’ task is to organize and to hold lectures, trainings, workshops, discussions to motivate knowledge gaining, to widen horizons and develop users’ critical thinking. With these activities, the libraries will convert into intellectual center, improve their reputation and increase their role considerably. The author also argues that changes in library functions will inevitably result in transformed library structure and space. The importance of interaction with the user groups is emphasized.

Indicators of regional scientific community publication activity
The relevancy of the problem of specifying and probating the system of measurable indicators for publication activities in regional scientific societies is proved. Contemporary scientometric works contemplating publication activities analysis for Russian regions are re viewed. In particular, the articles by V. Markusova, A. Libkind, A. Terekhov, D. Rubvalter, I. Libkind, T. Krylova, mentioned. These authors review the regions’ contribution into competition research projects and analyze research activities of Russian universities based on the Web of Knowledge statistical data. Bibliometric data on fundamental research in Novosibirsk region are revealed. Bibliometric analysis is suggested as the basic method for evaluating and interpreting the flow of scientific publication by the authors affiliated with territorial institutions. Expected findings of such study are discussed: data on the regions’ publication activities being introduced to science agenda, possibility to establish creative correlation between parameters and indicators of the publication flow generated by the regional academic community and dependent on the regional academic potential specific features.

Libraries and the global informatization: Transformation problems
The author examines the problem of transformation of libraries as a social institution; changing functions in the circumstances of society informatization; chances for library’s keeping its social mission when changing functionality; social and ethical aspects of changes in libraries. Positive and negative aspects of such events as Biblionight and similar, are highlighted. The author argues that the digital epoch could not wipe out the book culture but it has transformed it and provided new opportunities for development. She also focuses on training librarians and current problems of the profession. The quality of education must be measured by actual competences of the alumni rather than the set of continuously changing standards and newly invented competences. To fill the gap between theory and practice, internships in the best libraries, master classes delivered by library experts, their enrollment in teaching library disciplines, introduction to technological novelties at the universities’ libraries will help. She also argues that, instead of spontaneous optimization, the libraries need a structured strategy of development while preserving all the best experience.

Comparative analysis of research performance of the federal state and national research universities of Russia
The history of establishing national research universities (NRU) and federal state universities (FSU) and relevant standards is reviewed in brief. Based on several scientometric indicators (Hirsch index, publication record, citation, etc.), the research results of 10 FSU and 29 NRU are analyzed (as for the early 2017). The estimations were made by qualitative indicators of the universities’ faculty staff, data on publication activity and citation of Russian institutions in the Russian Science Citation Index databases. As a result of the study, the NRU and FSU rating lists were acquired, and the leaders were defined. Revealed are the universities which academic results are highly demanded, and the universities that need to improve their scientometric indicators. The leaders are named among the NRU and FSU. Five FRUs and 14 NRU undoubtedly comply with their status which is evidenced by their productivity since their establishment up to January, 2017.

Bibliography and philosophy. Reflections on the book “The essay of the evolution of bibliography poetics” by Valery Leonov
Valery P. Leonov proposed an original approach, opening prospects for the development of bibliographic studies in the digital age. The book's title conceptualizes and designates a new research program. The poetics of the bibliography is more than a theory of fine literature. It is understood as cultural-historical discipline combining information and humanistic functions of books. As a result of the very thorough analysis of the works on history and theory of literature, he concludes that the poetics should be understood as an art of bibliography. Leonov’s poetics of bibliography reveals the cultural and anthropological value of reading and writing, restores the high status of printed books. The library is seen as an important institution of socialization and humanization. The relevance and significance of the book are emphasized. V. Leonov has compiled the massive array of historical sources and current publications that modern bibliographers should get familiar with. The study findings may apply to developing new education courses in bibliography. The book will be of interest to professionals and the wide audience.
