A thematic exhibition “Keeping up with the times: the present and future of the library in the digital age” is on show in the Periodicals Reading Room (room 106) from September 1 to October 27.

Decades of the world wide web have brought a lot of useful innovations: email, social networks, mobile technologies, cloud computing, etc. The era of the Internet of Things has begun.

In the digital age, the importance of information culture is rapidly increasing, and the library bears an increased responsibility for developing the skills of competent search queries, navigating in a variety of information resources. The role of selecting and assessing the reliability of network information increases immeasurably. The issues of library development in the direction of accelerated digitalization of processes and services are covered by publications in the journals "The Library World", "Contemporary Library", "Science and Innovations", etc.

Libraries are implementing visitor information systems, they are digitizing cultural heritage, building electronic databases, developing information portals and virtual exhibitions, and introducing augmented and virtual reality technologies. Digitalization creates qualitatively new opportunities for library and information services, given the fact that access to library resources and services today is available 24/7 from anywhere in the world. The topics of new library technology market development (development of mobile applications, robotization, creation of web-archives, chat communications, etc.) are covered in articles from the periodicals "Scientific and Technical Libraries", "Library Science", "BAE Bulletin".

The materials of the editions "Archives and Records Management", "Library", "Bibliography" are focused on the promotion of libraries in social networks, maintenance of library websites and blogs, formation of relevant electronic resources, development of bibliography in the digital environment.

In total, the exposition includes about 40 periodicals.
