Abstract. The interoperability problem in the field of digital libraries abroad and in Russia is investigated. The principal difference between integrated and interoperable systems is emphasized. In integrated systems the control is realized from one point, whereas in interoperable systems the control is realized using ICT-standards. Integrated systems control is realized from one point, whereas interoperable systems control is realized by ICT-standards. Abroad a number of international associations and separate organizations are involved the issues of standardization activity when creating and combining digital libraries It is shown that abroad digital libraries are created and combined mainly on the interoperability principles. A number of recommendations which provide an interoperability are developed. Also is shown that last years in Russia active creating and combining digital libraries occurs. The creation of National digital library which must combine public Russian libraries of federal, regional and municipal levels, libraries of scientific and educational institutions as well should be considered as the most large-scale project. From made analysis it can be seen that in establishing and combining of digital libraries standards play only a very insignificant role and national standards practically are absent. It is proposed to apply the developed by the authors earlier and fixed in the Russian standard GOST R 55062-2012 unified approach which provides interoperability of information systems for digital libraries using the foreign experience. This proposal to ensure the interoperability of digital libraries contains the main provisions of the concept, the architecture, the problem-oriented model and the profile. It is stressed the importance of appearance of the national standard GOST R 7.0.96 2016, which contains the necessary terms and definitions and the main characteristics, the necessary set of species parameters, the functionality and the organizational foundations of digital libraries.

Key words: digital library, metadata, interoperability, information systems, framework, architecture, information technology, interoperability model, interoperability profile, standards.
