One of the tasks of the modern scientific library is to ensure completeness of search, quality of collection, selectivity of processing, reliability of storage, promptness of spreading information.

It is revealed that in recent decades, bibliometry has become a standard tool for scientific policy and research management in various fields of science.Bibliometry covers such research methods as citation analysis; analysis of reference journals; analysis of quantitative characteristics of primary documents; quantitative analysis of publications of individual authors and their citation; quantitative analysis of scientific publications of particular countries of the world, states, and certain teams of scientists; theoretical issues, including the study of patterns of growth, aging and rank distribution of scientific documents; content analysis of scientific documents; other issues related to spreading scientific documents.
