Creating a list of literature for scientific work is a very time-consuming and time-consuming job. It is important to clearly identify all sources of information the author uses when writing a work, following clear citation rules. And bibliographic or reference managers come to help researchers. There are a large number of bibliographic information management systems, including Mendeley, Citavi, EndNote, Zotero and others. A common feature of all reference managers is the ability to collect and store information, organize it in a user-friendly way, output in the current format. Sumy State University scholars actively use them in their work. This is evidenced by the results of a competition that Elsevier Ukraine held among all users of the free Mendeley bibliographic manager during July. The winners were young scientists of SSU: Denis Kurbatov, Artem Artyukhov and Taras Lyutyy. Congratulations on their victory!

The Grandfather Svyryd, or Svyryd Opanasovych, is a simple rural old man. He lives in the countryside, keeps farming, likes to talk about politics and how people lived earlier. The Grandfather Svyryd is the mask of the popular blogger and author of the five-volume project "History of Ukraine from Grandfather Svyryd". Two books of the project are already accessible to readers. The "History" is a folk book because it was written at the request of many thousands of Svyryd Opanasovych's blog readers. The individual author's style is to follow strictly to the historical truth, which is presented in an easy and witty story form of the rural old man. The historical events are full of humor and irony. The peculiarity of the author's genre is the revival of historical characters in the format of dialogues and the involvement of readers in the analysis of the historical events.

The book is available in the reading room of the Central Library, room 305.

Sumy State University Library joined a charitable action to support displaced higher education institutions from occupied territories. The library of Donetsk Law Institute, which carries out educational and scientific activities for five years in Kryvyi Rih city of Dnipropetrovsk region and in Mariupol city of Donetsk region, got over 200 copies of educational and scientific literature in the economic, humanities and natural sciences. The main part of the transferred books are the works of SumDU Staff.






The beginning of this summer was really "hot". Schoolchildren from about twenty schools of the city visited the SumDU library. We have prepared for them interesting contests, quizzes, online games and unforgettable meetings.

The youngest readers visited library on the Children's Day. They took part in the quest, developed the imagination, painted, sang and even danced.

Schoolchildren of secondary school participated in events on environmental topics, local lore quests, thematic hours on etiquette and tolerance. A pleasant bonus for them was a meeting with the modern talented artist Svetlana Kachurovska.

Senior pupils, future entrants, found out more about university faculties during an exciting quest "The Battle for the Throne".

Thank you to everyone who came to us. See you soon!

The most Interesting Novelties of the Library





The Unicode cookbook for linguists: Managing writing systems using orthography profiles. This text is a practical guide for linguists, and programmers, who work with data in multilingual computational environments. We introduce the basic concepts needed to understand how writing systems and character encodings function, and how they work together at the intersection between the Unicode Standard and the International Phonetic Alphabet. Although these standards are often met with frustration by users, they nevertheless provide language researchers and programmers with a consistent computational architecture needed to process, publish and analyze lexical data from the world's languages. Thus we bring to light common, but not always transparent, pitfalls which researchers face when working with Unicode and IPA. Having identified and overcome these pitfalls involved in making writing systems and character encodings syntactically and semantically interoperable (to the extent that they can be), we created a suite of open-source Python and R tools to work with languages using orthography profiles that describe author- or document-specific orthographic conventions. In this cookbook we describe a formal specification of orthography profiles and provide recipes using open source tools to show how users can segment text, analyze it, identify errors, and to transform it into different written forms for comparative linguistics research.



Write Here, Right Now: An interactive Introduction to Academic Writing and Research utilizes PressBooks to create and host a writing e-textbook for first year university students that would effectively integrate into the flipped classroom model. The textbook could also be used for non-flipped classroom designs, as the embedded videos, diagrams and linked modules would act as an all-in-one multimedia textbook geared towards multiple learning styles and disciplines. The components of the textbook, including the embedded videos, could be swapped in and out in order to accommodate a professor’s best idea of his/her own course design.







The Outsiders is a coming-of-age novel by S. E. Hinton, first published in 1967 by Viking Press. Hinton was 15 when she started writing the novel but did most of the work when she was 16 and a junior in high school. Hinton was 18 when the book was published. The book details the conflict between two rival gangs divided by their socioeconomic status: the working-class "greasers" and the upper-class "Socs". The story is told in first-person perspective by teenaged protagonist Ponyboy Curtis.

The story in the book takes place in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1965, but this is never explicitly stated in the book.







Words of Wisdom: Intro to Philosophy. Words of Wisdom can come from anyone. In this text we discuss topics ranging from "Are Humans good by nature?" to "Is there a God?" to "Do I have the right to my own opinion?"

The text uses materials that are 2,500 years old, and materials that were in the news this year. Wise people come in all shapes and types, and from every culture on earth. We have poetry and folktales, sacred writings and letters. Dialogues and interviews, news columns, Ted Talks, You Tube recordings and even comedy are all a part of the content in this text.You will be most successful reading this on line.

An Introduction to Philosophy. The goal of this text is to present philosophy to newcomers as a living discipline with historical roots. While a few early chapters are historically organized, the goal in the historical chapters is to trace a developmental progression of thought that introduces basic philosophical methods and frames issues that remain relevant today. Later chapters are topically organized. These include philosophy of science and philosophy of mind, areas where philosophy has shown dramatic recent progress. This text concludes with four chapters on ethics, broadly construed. Traditional theories of right action is covered in a third of these. Students are first invited first to think about what is good for themselves and their relationships in a chapter of love and happiness.

The FAD (features, attributes, and design) template is used to identify the features and attributes that can be used for product and service differentiation. The Ten–Ten planning process contains two templates: an Organizational and Industry Analysis template and the Business Plan Overview template. These two templates coupled with the FAD template can be used to develop a full-blown business plan.




BezumtsiThe Power of Selling is the perfect textbook to teach students about the proven process of selling. More important, it teaches students how to apply the tenets of selling to how to sell themselves and get the job they want, with the same process professional sales people learn (or brush up) on their own selling skills.

What makes someone successful in sales? Are great sales people born or made? Is there one magic selling process, or does the process change based on the business‚ or the customer? How can the selling process really come alive for students in the classroom? How do students learn how to sell for life, not just for a course? The Power of Selling by Kim Richmond answers these questions and makes the principles of selling come alive.





BezumtsiIn the edition Security factors of education policy: international experience and Ukrainian realities relationship and mutual influence between education and security factors under modernization challenges and external threats are analyzed. New approaches for identification of national security criteria in education sphere based on relevant international experience are proposed.

The Story of Contract Law: Implementing the Bargain. This book includes many classic teaching cases and introduces new ones. The book also includes many problems, most based on actual cases. The book takes especial care with the doctrine of concurrent conditions, a common-law rule adopted in the late 1700s that required doctrinal readjustment across all the law governing contract performance and remedies.







Law School Materials for Success is designed to give you the essentials of that process. It is purposefully brief – most law students do not have the time for an extensive examination of the study of law school. Rather, they need a source for some basic, critical advice and some pointers on where to go for more if necessary. That is what this book and the accompanying podcasts are designed to provide.

Radiation in the Environment. In the post-nuclear era the word ‘radiation’, in the popular lexicon, has taken on a specialized and negative meaning. Largely because of media misinterpretation the word now suggests to the non-scientist the malignant effects associated with the misuse of nuclear energy. But ‘radiation’ is not all harmful, nor indeed is it all nuclear in origin.
We live in an environment bathed in radiation of natural origin and essential to the maintenance of life on the planet. Sunlight and its secondary thermal emissions of heat radiation is the engine of life on the planet Earth. In addition to this ubiquitous low-energy radiation there are natural high-energy radiations in which life has developed and for which evolution and nature have provided effective defence mechanisms.

Introduction to Econometrics with R The interest in the freely available statistical programming language and software environment R (R Core Team, 2018) is soaring. By the time we wrote first drafts for this project, more than 11000 add-ons (many of them providing cutting-edge methods) were made available on the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN), an extensive network of FTP servers around the world that store identical and up-to-date versions of R code and its documentation. R dominates other (commercial) software for statistical computing in most fields of research in applied statistics. The benefits of it being freely available, open source and having a large and constantly growing community of users that contribute to CRAN render R more and more appealing for empirical economists and econometricians alike.






The Smart Enough City. New technology alters perceptions not just of what is possible but also of what the world can—and should—look like. Digital and data-driven technologies, accompanied by the widespread adoption of tech goggles, have convinced many that smart cities are what the challenges of the twenty-first century require: that smarter cities—more connected, more optimized, more efficient—will be better cities. This seductive logic generates severe misperceptions and subverts opportunities to truly improve urban life. Instead of addressing the real issues that cities face, smart cities present novelty solutions to poorly specified problems. The realization of those solutions looms as a crisis in
urbanism: the smart city will be a place where self-driving cars strangle downtowns and debilitate public transportation, where democracy is reduced to sending pictures of potholes with an app, where police use algorithms to justify and perpetuate racist practices, where governments and companies surveil public space to control behavior.
