Abstract

The study presents an understanding of encyclopedia science (studies of encyclopedias) as a complex of studies of encyclopedias as well on encyclopedic knowledge. One of the important tasks for encyclopedists is the investigation of encyclopedic books, which are considered as a special literature. The emergence of a new solid encyclopedia is always an event in the cultural life of a society, because it is a publication of high knowledge, exemplary performance, a peculiar document that reflects our reality, the heritage of the people (or its parts). Research of encyclopedic literature is caused by the socio-humanitarian actual issues. Another task of this science is the analysis of the widest spectrum of knowledge and the selection among it of such knowledge, which can be considered as encyclopedic knowledge, that is those that deserve to be presented in the encyclopedic literature. Topical issues of a regional character which are violated in studies of encyclopedias are outlined on the background of the general characteristics of this science. The level of development of regional encyclopedias of Ukraine is traced the study. There is a need to create in each Ukrainian region a basic encyclopedia that would represent the region, would serve its "business card", and would create a holistic objective image of the past and the present of region, its sights, great personalities.
