Library System Development Centre, National and University Library, and integration of school libraries in COBISS
The amendments to the Librarianship Act in 2015 redefined the status of school libraries and assigned new tasks associated with the monitoring of the activities and development of school libraries to the National and University Library (NUL). The statistical monitoring of activities performed by school libraries, the designing of the school library development strategy, the concept of three-year development plans and the development of regulations on the conditions to be met by school libraries in the field of education are among the new activities of the Library System Development Centre, NUL.
In autumn 2019, IZUM prepared the medium-term strategy for 2019–2024. Seven strategic objectives are identified. They are described based on the common methodology (situation analysis, description of the objectives, planned measures to achieve the objectives, expected results and effects, indicators and specific risk factors with risk control measures).
The article presents an analysis of the increase in bibliographic records in COBIB.SI in 2018. The data collected during the year were included in the analysis. Emphasis is placed on bibliographic data (n = 169,226), as well as data on the increase of normative records for personal names in the CONOR.SI database (n = 63 716) and data on downloaded records from other databases. Included is the analysis of the increment of bibliographic records by months for 2018 and the most productive days of the year.
Measuring the data quality of the bibliographic and authority records: case study of selected data elements for facet navigation and a displayed list of search results in COBISS+
As one of the segments of data quality analysis, theoretical and methodological approaches towards measuring the quality of data in bibliographic and authority records are presented. On the basis of professional literature review, the paper focuses on metrics, methods of measurement and results analysis.
The literature review is an integral part of research. The story of Pierre Trémaux (1818–1895) illustrates how factors, such as hoaxes, fabrications, untrue stories, myths and prejudice, which have nothing to do in science, difficulties in comprehending and accepting new scientific paradigms and also slow and geographically limited dissemination of scientific findings, which results in not being familiar with scientific findings and discoveries elsewhere in the world, are harmful for the ecology of scientific communication.
