Knowledge Organization: Research Tools concerning the Bilateral Relations of Romania

Knowledge organization and all initiatives in this area, as well as the tools developed over time for this purpose, have always been accompanied by numerous challenges. The bibliography, although among the oldest tools of knowledge organization, still proves its value, especially in the context of the quantitative developments in contemporary society and of the technological progress. This paper presents a recent initiative in the field of knowledge organization, namely a project started in 2011 at the level of the Department of Information and Documentation Sciences within the Faculty of Letters at the University of Bucharest. The project consists in a series of bibliographical tools which cover Romania’s bilateral relations with different states. The three bibliographies completed to date within this series are mentioned, the paper focusing on the last appearance (the first part of the bibliography concerning the Romanian-Czech relations), on the challenges and difficulties encountered in its achievement, but also on the latest endeavour within this vast project, the initiation of the actions for developing an online tool, a platform to provide the academic and research community, as well as the general public, with a flexible, user-friendly information tool for retrieving scientific literature on RomanianBritish relations, and which will contribute to the research process by facilitating access to information and orientation of research.

Keywords: knowledge organization, research tool, bibliography, bilateral relations, Romania
