    The amount and availability of information has increased considerably. As a result, there is a growing need for skills, not only in accessing information, but also in critically assessing its validity and quality. Consequently, user education has changed significantly and teaching information literacy has become a key component of academic libraries all around the world. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the current practice of training activities at Austrian university libraries. The focus is on the region of Vienna as it is rich in higher education institutions. First, a review of literature is undertaken in order to describe the concept of information literacy. Hence important surveys, standards and models are analysed. Subsequently, an empirical study is carried out to investigate whether Austrian university libraries have as-sumed the responsibility of trying to help students to gain skills in information literacy. Therefore, qualitative interviews are conducted with librarians who are responsible for teaching information literacy at university libraries in Vienna. The interviews aim at obtain-ing qualitative data concerning content, design and organisation of training programmes. The findings suggest that the current practice of teaching information literacy at university libraries in Vienna is heterogeneous. Various training activities could be identified, which are depended on academic discipline as well as personnel and financial resources. Further-more, the interviews indicate that there is a growing willingness to integrate user education into the academic curriculum. Moreover, an increasing tendency towards implementing e-learning tools to improve students' information literacy skills is recognisable.

    This study intends to a proposal for suitable theoretical and practical directions for more effective access to electronic information sources from the academic staff. The comparison of the results between United Kingdom and Greece will be very interesting because of the differences in the information access models in the academic environment, and the libraries' role into the diffusion of the information given that the difference into the development and progress of library science in these two countries.

    ACO – Ant Colonies Optimization is a collaborative information retrieval technique, belonging to the wider area of AI (more specifically, swarm Intelligence). ACO aims at improving search engines’ performances by exploiting users’ behavior. Bookmarks, comments and tagging (i.e. ‘like’) are processed in an algorithm which makes the search engine work in order to recommend the ‘best way’ to users with similar information needs. Postings and comments are the ‘pherormones’ left by previous users throughout information hunting. However, the metaphor of ant colonies foraging for food stimulates further questions. In fact, the optimization of information seeking could reveal a controlling attitude, urging everybody to seek for the same target, minimizing individual choice, freedom and awareness. Could ‘ants’ be easily exploited by a single-minded ideological thinking or by a market-oriented society? Indeed that was what Norbert Weaner predicted in far-off 1950.

    The aim of this paper is to demonstrate mentorship’s current relevance in the academic, educational and professional fields and its evolution over the last decades. This study is based on the scientific publications on mentorship released in the 1997-2021 period that are indexed in Scopus. For this purpose, the study was carried out through a quantitative methodology and bibliometric techniques. Stages: research strategy outline; indicators and variables selection; result analysis; five-year comparative analysis with other relevant subjects. The results show a consistent increase in the number of publications, particularly in the last five years, during which 47% of the publications were issued; a significant interest in mentorship from Health Sciences (53%), especially in Education; a notable increase in the number of publications on mentorship in comparison to other important subjects during the last five years. The conclusion is that mentorship continues to stay relevant and that there has been an evident interest, particularly from the Health Sciences field regarding Education, which might be due to the noteworthy role of mentors in guarding and encouraging proper practices in Medicine and Research.

    This paper analyses the scientometric attributes of the publications that appeared in the Indian Journal of Animal Science, a scientific journal in animal breeding, physiology, nutrition, dairying, animal production, fisheries, etc. from 2015 to 2020. The bibliographic records of publications were retrieved from the Web of Science database and retrieved 1720 research papers. The collected data were analyzed by using Web of Science and biblioshiny software. The results revealed that the maximum number of research papers were published during the year 2020 and also received maximum citations in the same year. The research contribution also followed Lotka’s Law and found that the researchers of ICAR gave the maximum contribution - the Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Bareilly and the highest research publications were from India.
