Thus, the article presents an introduction to the concept of digital divide, its status in Costa Rica and comprehensive data on access to information technology and communication, connectivity and digital literacy. It also makes a synthesis of the various projects and institutions that collaborate in reducing the digital divide in the country. It is concluded that efforts are not enough and are disconnected.

    (2014-01-01 00:00:00) Calvo Guillén, Ginnette Carolina
    This investigation presents an experience of the the Digital Portfolio as a teaching strategy in two groups in the Automated Information Services course, which is part of the second year of the pregrade careers in the Bibliotecology and Information Sciences School of the University of Costa Rica. The strategy was developed individually and aimed to build a website as a space for reflection on the learning achieved during the course, as well as to create an information service to develop skills evaluating and selecting reliable sources of information online. The strategy allowed the students to raise awareness of their responsibility in the process of building knowledge. It also allowed feedback on both sides and the development of skills in identifying reliable sources online.

    Information reuse in public sector: application to the European Union
    (2014-01-01 00:00:00) Giménez Chornet, Vicent
    This article analyzes the reuse of information in the European Union after the implementation of the 2003 Directive. It investigates how the six states with the highest European GDP make such information available to the public on their websites. The aim is to assess how it has affected its implementation in these countries. The methodology consisted, on the one hand, on analyzing the legislation to identify its scope and, secondly, on providing a test of information retrieval to compare search results. In conclusion, it is shown that there is a great disparity in the volume of data offered between states, in the different classification systems, in the deficiencies about the formal description and in the number of results in the retrieval of information. Therefore an advance in the interoperability of data is proposed, with greater control of documentary language.

    About Literacies and Competences in the Digital Age: Case Study
    (2014-01-01 00:00:00) Castaño Muñoz, Wilson
    There is a lot of information about what digital skills people should have to communicate successfully on the internet. The literature on the subject refers to a range of disciplinary fields that analyze the different meanings and variables of the term "Literacy" (Bawden, 2002), although these notions are more related to library and information science. This article outlines some concepts and terms that are intended to describe the competences and skills in information management that a person must have to be considered information literate. Finally, this paper presents the results of a research made on researchers at the Institute of Political Studies of the University of Antioquia (IPS), Medellin, Colombia. Some of their skills and literacies are analyzed, related to how they search and retrieve information and the level of knowledge researchers need to have to function in an environment that has changed substantially from the traditional paper format, which they were fully used to, to an increasing prevalence of electronic and digital media.

    Library services accessible to the visually impaired at the National University of La Plata, Argentina
    (2013-12-17 16:33:06) Corda, María Cecilia; Ferrante, Mariana
    The purpose of this work, of an exploratory and descriptive nature, is to better understand the condition of some of the university libraries of the UNLP when it comes to offering services accessible to people with visual impairment. The analysis focuses on which of these services are presently available, which obstacles users come up against, and which solutions have been implemented. To such end, we look, first, into the design of the web sites of the selected libraries. Secondly, we study how such libraries integrate the visually impaired into their services and documentary products, that is to say, whether such libraries have accessible bibliographic material and services. Lastly, some proposals are outlined to overcome the present situation at the university libraries analyzed.
