Microflows of non-periodical editions (books and brochures) and articles from periodicals are considered separately from each other. Articles prevail in the flow. The volume of books and brochures microflow makes the tenth part of the total number of documents selected for research. The identical highly productive directions in thematic structure of two micro-flows are found: experience of introducing information-communication technologies and techniques to perform library-bibliographic processes. The perspective directions of researches are revealed: libraries analytical activity, library innovatics theory, library innovations legal regulation and economy.
