To Yu.P. Melentyeva's anniversary



Yulia Petrovna Me-lentyeva - known Russian bibliotekoved. Its contribution to development of library science of the country is represented very significant. First of all, it is the doctoral dissertation "Library as institute of socialization of youth" (1995) - work where the socializing function of library was for the first time comprehended. In this work which appeared when a habitual ideological basis on which for many years there was the Soviet library fell, the new concept of library service based on understanding of library service as the socializing process as means of "strengthening of the personality" due to familiarizing with knowledge was offered, to information as help of the personality in the solution of vital problems. Not accidentally therefore its concept successfully took root in Krasnodar, Stavropol and other cities of Russia. This work as the monograph was published in Psikhologiya publishing house of the Russian Academy of Education (RAE) (1999) and in publishing house of Institute of social pedagogics of Russian joint stock company (2001)

The edition of the collective monograph "The Russian library science became other successful project: The XX century. Directions of development, problem and results" (2003). Yu.P. Melentyeva was the author of the idea, the originator and the organizer of this research. This monograph is unique, it held a specific place in bibliotekovedchesky literature as here the deep analysis of evolution of the Russian (Soviet) library science within all the 20th century, one of the most difficult in the Russian history is carried out. It is necessary to tell that this monograph was highly estimated not only in Russia, but also abroad - the German, American, Bulgarian colleagues.

Yu.P. Melentyeva's activity at a position of the manager of department of library science of Moscow State University of culture and arts (MGUKI) (1998-2004) was very fruitful. The oldest department of the university which was directed nearly forty years by the outstanding scientist K.I. Abramov got to good

hands. For years of management of Yu.P. Melentyeva the department kept and strengthened the authority and on the university and is far beyond its limits: the department held the international conferences and seminars, developed new training courses and specializations (for example,

such as "Bibliotechnoinformatsionny providing area of the right", developed at the initiative of directly Yu.P. Melentyeva); developed communications with libraries, involving in teaching large spetsia - sheets-experts. At this particular time the department of library science invited as professor of DAAD (German service of the academic exchanges) doctor Gottfried Kratts who, working at department more than six years, made much for strengthening of material and technical resources of department, for expansion of professional communication of her teachers and students. With its active help to Yu.P. Melentyeva the Russian-German center of library science (1999) was organized. In 2003 on its initiative the Library and information institute of MGUKI (BIIn MGUKI) where it carried out duties of the deputy director for scientific work till 2004 was created

A logical result of teaching activity of Yu.P. Melentyeva was writing of the author's textbook "Library Service" (2006) by it. where Yu.P. Melentyeva's innovation was also brightly shown: for the first time library service of users of libraries is considered not only on the Russian material as it was before, but also is comprehended as uniform universal professional process. Such approach forces the student to understand the valid scale of library service as sociocultural phenomenon, to comprehend its role both in life of the personality, and in life of all society. The special place in professional life of Yu.P. Me-lentyeva was occupied by development and promotion of "The code of ethics of the Russian librarian". This work was given nearly ten years.

Yu.P. Me-lentyeva had to argue also with opponents of acceptance "the Code.". However it is already obvious that by professional community "Code." it is demanded, it is widely applied in practice of many libraries, it drew to itself(himself) attention of foreign colleagues: in the American, German, Bulgarian, Polish professional press, reviews of this document are published, theses and scientific articles are devoted to its analysis.
