  • Initial study of a chatbot for virtual modality students from the
           Inter-American School of Librarianship

    • Abstract: Resumen La inclusión de las TIC en la educación ha generado diversos retos, entre ellos, el imaginario tergiversado de lo que implica y significa la modalidad virtual, el uso de las plataformas y la apropiación de los procesos logísticos, académicos y administrativos. En este contexto, surgen diversas preguntas por parte de los estudiantes que hacen imperioso brindar respuestas claras y oportunas. Aun más cuando estos estudiantes son campo de estudio de la información, quienes reconocen que la transferencia de la información contribuye en la optimización de los procesos de comunicación y de manera específica en los entornos de formación. Es así como el presente artículo dará cuenta de una experiencia investigativa que tuvo como objetivo principal diseñar una propuesta de asistente virtual que permitiera dar solución a las dudas de los estudiantes de archivística y bibliotecología de la modalidad virtual de la Escuela Interamericana de Bibliotecología -EIB- de la Universidad de Antioquia, con el fin de optimizar los procesos comunicativos entre los estudiantes y quienes coordinan las dinámicas de virtualidad en la institución. Dicho proceso de investigación se fundamentó en la metodología design thinking, que favoreció un estado de empatía con la comunidad académica y posibilitó la identificación de las inquietudes más recurrentes de los estudiantes y sus respectivas categorías temáticas principales. En este sentido, este fue un estudio inicial de carácter exploratorio y descriptivo que logró obtener información que servirá de insumo para una próxima fase de desarrollo de un asistente virtual para la EIB.Abstract The inclusion of ICT (TIC for the Spanish acronyms) in education has generated various challenges, among them the distorted imagery of what the virtual modality implies and means; the use of platforms and the appropriation of logistical, academic and administrative processes. In this context, various questions arise from students who think it is an imperative to provide clear answers timely. Even more so, when these students belong to the field of study of information and recognize that the transfer of information contributes to the optimization of communication processes, specifically in training environments. This is why this article will report on a research experience whose main objective was to design a proposal for a virtual assistant that allowed solving the doubts of archival and library students in the virtual modality of the Inter-American School of Library Science -EIB- of the University of Antioquia, in order to optimize communication processes between students and those who coordinate the dynamics of virtuality in the institution. Such research process was based on the design thinking methodology that favored a state of empathy with the academic community which made it possible to identify the most recurrent concerns of students and their respective main thematic categories. In this sense, this was an initial exploratory and descriptive study that managed to obtain information which will serve as input for a next phase of development of a virtual assistant for the EIB.
  • Information and memory in the dictatorial documents availability interface

    • Abstract: Resumo Tendo como premissa o acesso à informação enquanto um direito público, e considerando o papel social da rememoração dos traumáticos eventos históricos que foram as ditaduras latino-americanas, essa pesquisa tem por objetivo analisar, a partir do prisma da Ciência a Informação, a disponibilização dos acervos digitais de comissões da verdade do Sul do Brasil. A abordagem metodológica foi de uma pesquisa qualitativa relacionada à seleção e ao estudo desses acervos, descritiva na análise de sua disponibilização e acesso, e exploratória através do levantamento de dados. A partir de um aporte teórico em torno do binômio informação e memória, foram explorados aspectos como o esquecimento e a virtualização da memória. No viés aplicado, foram investigadas a fase em que se encontra a organização desses acervos e sua real disponibilização ao público. Como resultado, a pesquisa expõe dois casos de sistemas eficazes de disponibilização da informação no ciberespaço, contudo, também aponta situações de restrição ou dificuldade de acesso aos demais acervos analisados. Conclui-se que existe uma deficiência na disponibilização ao público da maior parte desses arquivos, demonstrando a necessidade de tornar acessíveis seus conteúdos, principalmente em formato digital, no sentido de preservar a memória e possibilitar a devida problematização dessas fontes históricas.Resumen Teniendo como premisa el acceso a la información como derecho público, y considerando el papel social de la rememoración de los traumáticos eventos históricos que fueron las dictaduras latinoamericanas, esta investigación tiene por objetivo analizar, desde la perspectiva de la Ciencias de la Información, la disponibilidad de colecciones digitales de comisiones de la verdad del sur de Brasil. El enfoque metodológico fue una investigación cualitativa relacionada con la selección y estudio de estas colecciones, descriptiva en el análisis de su disponibilidad y acceso, y exploratoria a través de la reunión de datos. A partir de un aporte teórico en torno del binomio información y memoria, se exploraron aspectos como el olvido y la virtualización de la memoria. En el aspecto aplicado, se investigó la etapa en la cual se encuentra la organización de estas colecciones y su real disponibilidad para el público. Como resultado, la investigación expone dos casos de sistemas efectivos de disponibilidad de la información en el ciberespacio; sin embargo, también señala situaciones de restricción o dificultad de acceso a las otras colecciones analizadas. Se concluye que existe una deficiencia en la disponibilidad al público de la mayoría de estos archivos, lo que demuestra la necesidad de hacer accesibles sus contenidos, especialmente en formato digital, con el fin de preservar la memoria y posibilitar la adecuada problematización de estas fuentes históricas.Abstract With the premise of access to information as a public right, and considering the social role of remembering the traumatic historical events that were the Latin American dictatorships, this research aims to analyze, from the perspective of Information Science, the availability of digital collections of truth commissions in southern Brazil. The methodological approach was a qualitative research related to the selection and study of these collections, descriptive in the analysis of their availability and access, and exploratory through data collection. Based on a theoretical contribution around the binomial information and memory, aspects such as forgetting and memory virtualization were explored. In the applied bias, the stage in which these collections are organized and their actual availability to the public were investigated. As a result, the research exposes two cases of effective systems for making information available in cyberspace, however, it also points out situations of restriction or difficulty in accessing the other collections analyzed. It is concluded that there is a deficiency in making most of these files available to the public, demonstrating the need to make their contents accessible, especially in digital format, in order to preserve the memory and enable the proper problematization of these historical sources.
  • The dissemination of scholarly publications in Humanities: The case of the
           University of León

    • Abstract: Resumen La difusión de la producción científica se ha convertido en un nuevo quehacer de los investigadores. Además de los tradicionales, han surgido otros canales para dar a conocer esas publicaciones al resto de la comunidad científica, como las redes sociales académicas, los identificadores de autores o los repositorios institucionales. Se compara el uso que hacen los investigadores del área de Humanidades de la Universidad de León de cinco plataformas de difusión de producción científica: ORCID, Google Scholar, ResearchGate,, y el repositorio institucional de la Universidad de León. Se analiza la presencia de los investigadores en estas plataformas y la producción científica depositada o vinculada a su perfil. Se observa una gran presencia de estos investigadores en ORCID y en el repositorio institucional, aunque en muchos casos con perfiles incompletos y desactualizados. La presencia en redes sociales académicas es menor y los perfiles creados tampoco recogen toda la producción científica de sus autores; sin embargo, para depositar copias en acceso abierto, los investigadores prefieren las redes sociales al repositorio institucional. Es necesario fomentar el uso de las plataformas de difusión de producción científica, especialmente de los repositorios institucionales, siendo la biblioteca un agente fundamental en esta labor.Abstract The dissemination of scholarly publications has become a new task for researchers. In addition to the traditional channels, other new ones have emerged to make this kind of publications known to the rest of the scientific community, such as academic social networks, author identifiers or institutional repositories. In this article, it is compared the use made by researchers in the Humanities area of the University of León of five platforms for the dissemination of scientific production: ORCID, Google Scholar, ResearchGate, and the institutional repository of the University of León. The presence of researchers on these platforms and the scientific production deposited or linked to their profile are analyzed. A large presence of these researchers is observed in ORCID and in the institutional repository, although, in many cases, their profiles are incomplete and outdated. Their presence in academic social networks is lower and the profiles created do not include all the scientific production of their authors. However, to deposit copies in open access, researchers prefer social networks to institutional repositories. It is necessary to promote the use of platforms for the dissemination of scientific production, especially institutional repositories, with the library being a key agent in this task.
  • Proposal for a Virtual Program in Library Science and Information Studies
           for the University of La Salle, Bogotá-Colombia

    • Abstract: Resumen El objetivo de este artículo es diseñar la propuesta de un Programa Virtual en Bibliotecología y Estudios de la Información para la Universidad de La Salle de Bogotá-Colombia. Dicha propuesta se generó como resultado de un proceso de investigación-innovación curricular, realizado para estar en sintonía con las tendencias actuales que se plantean a la disciplina y profesión bibliotecológica y, de modo particular, las propuestas relacionadas con los procesos formativos en este campo de conocimiento. La metodología consideró la triangulación de fuentes e información que se derivó de la aplicación de diferentes técnicas de investigación: comparación de programas académicos similares, encuesta realizada a una muestra intencional-focalizada y lineamientos señalados por el Ministerio de Educación Nacional de Colombia y la Universidad de La Salle para los programas virtuales. Las conclusiones plantean la necesidad de ofrecer programas académicos en este campo de conocimiento y bajo la modalidad virtual como una estrategia de ampliación de cobertura educativa y de inclusión socioformativa, que logre la generación de alternativas de educación bibliotecológica que se requieren no sólo en Colombia, sino en América Latina.Abstract The general objective of this article is to present the proposal of a Virtual Program in Library Science and Information Studies for the Universidad de La Salle in Bogotá-Colombia. This proposal was generated as a result of a curricular research-innovation process, carried out to be in tune with the current trends that arise in the library discipline and profession and, in a particular way, the proposals related to the training processes in this field of education. knowledge. The methodology considered the triangulation of sources and information that was derived from the application of different research techniques: comparison of similar academic programs, survey carried out on an intentional-focused sample and guidelines indicated by the Ministry of National Education of Colombia and the University of La Salle for virtual programs. The conclusions raise the need to offer academic programs in this field of knowledge and under the virtual modality, as a strategy to expand educational coverage and socio-formative inclusion, for achieving the generation of library education alternatives that are required not only in Colombia, but in Latin America.
  • Rethinking the photographic object, an approach from the Affect Theory

    • Abstract: Resumen El presente trabajo profundiza en los rasgos afectivos que se imprimen en el objeto fotográfico, así como en las colecciones a las que se integran en su devenir en el tiempo. En este sentido, recurre a las herramientas del llamado “giro afectivo” para abrir una reflexión sobre las posibilidades del objeto fotográfico y los acervos, a fin de identificar elementos que amplíen el horizonte informativo que se utiliza en el procesamiento de las colecciones en los repositorios. El ejercicio se centra en analizar dos fotografías del Fondo Aurelio Robles Acevedo, que resguarda el Archivo Histórico de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, a la luz de la propuesta teórica de Ann Cvetkovich en An Archive of Feelings y de Sara Ahmed en La política cultural de las emociones, quienes estudian los acervos desde perspectivas teóricas ligeramente distanciadas que los identifican como textos culturales receptores de sentimientos codificados en el contenido, o bien, como “una zona de contacto” que incluye impresiones de naturaleza personal e institucional.Abstract The present work explores the affective features that are imprinted on the photographic object, as well as on the collections which they are integrated to in its evolution over time. In this framework, it nourishes from the tools of the “affective turn” to open an analysis of the photographic object to identify elements that broaden the information horizon, which is used in arranging and conserving collections in repositories. The exercise focuses on two photographs of the Aurelio Robles Acevedo Fond that keeps the Historical Archive of the National Autonomous University of Mexico and analyses them considering the proposal of Ann Cvetkovich in An Archive of Feelings and of Sara Ahmed in The Cultural Politics of Emotion, which insist on studying archives from slightly distanced perspectives that identify them as cultural texts receiving feelings encoded in the content or, like a “contact zone” that includes imprints of institutional and personal nature.
  • The Mudéjar bindings of the Morales by Saint Gregory of the
           National Library of Spain

    • Abstract: Resumen Las bibliotecas españolas, europeas y latinoamericanas contienen en su fondo antiguo numerosas encuadernaciones de influencia árabe no estudiadas; entre estas instituciones tenemos las bibliotecas nacionales de España, México y Colombia. En este trabajo se realiza un estudio sobre las encuadernaciones mudéjares de los Morales sobre el libro de Job de san Gregorio, procedentes de la Biblioteca de la Casa de Alba. Se lleva a cabo un análisis de la estructura decorativa, así como de los elementos, utensilios y técnicas ornamentales. El análisis de los datos nos indica que fueron realizadas en el mismo taller y en la misma época, y fueron adquiridas por la Biblioteca Nacional de España a finales de 2017.Abstract Spanish, European and Latin American libraries contain in their antique collections numerous bindings of Arabic influence that have not been studied, as is the case of such important libraries as the National Libraries of Spain, Mexico and Colombia, among others. This paper studies the Mudéjar bindings of the Morals on the Book of Job by Saint Gregory, from the Biblioteca de la Casa de Alba. An analysis is carried out of the decorative structure, as well as of the elements, tools and ornamental techniques. The analysis of the data indicates that they were made in the same workshop and at the same time, and were acquired by the National Library of Spain at the end of 2017.
  • Digital documents and Archival Legislation: the case of Mexico and Cuba

    • Abstract: Resumen El patrimonio documental de una nación tiene un fuerte componente de los documentos digitales que se generan hoy en la administración pública. La gestión, el tratamiento y el acceso a esta especificidad documental son objeto de regulación y protección por el Derecho. Las legislaciones archivísticas de América Latina tienen en estos soportes un reto ineludible. México (2018) y Cuba (2020) son los cuerpos legales más contemporáneos y ya evocan estos registros. Con esta premisa, el objetivo de este artículo es analizar comparativamente las regulaciones jurídicas de los documentos digitales, a partir la legislación archivística de México y Cuba, con el fin de obtener apreciaciones conclusivas que sirvan de norma para el territorio latinoamericano. La metodología y las técnicas empleadas fueron las inherentes al campo teórico-jurídico, el derecho comparado, analítico-deductivo y la técnica de análisis de documentos jurídicos. Se obtuvo una comparación valorativa de ambos corpus en cuanto a este objeto de protección y se infieren recomendaciones en este sentido para Latinoamérica. Se concluyó que los documentos digitales son parte indisoluble del patrimonio documental; la posición mexicana y cubana de protección legal del documento digital y su archivo, en espíritu normativo, es no contemplar el soporte.Abstract The Documentary Heritage of a nation has a strong component of digital documents that is generated today in public administration. Its management, treatment and access to this documentary specificity are subject to regulation and protection by law. The archival laws of Latin America have in these supports an inescapable challenge. Mexico (2018) and Cuba (2020) are the most contemporary legal bodies and they already evoke these records. With this premise, the objective of this article is to comparatively analyze the legal regulations of digital documents, based on the Archival Legislation of Mexico and Cuba, in order to obtain conclusive assessments that serve as a norm for the Latin American territory. The methodology and techniques used were those inherent to the theoretical-legal field, comparative, analytical-deductive and technical analysis of legal documents. An evaluative comparison of both corpus was obtained regarding this object of protection and recommendations are inferred, in this sense for Latin America. It was concluded that digital documents are an indissoluble part of the Documentary Heritage; the Mexican and Cuban position of legal protection of the digital document and its archive, in a normative spirit, is not to contemplate the support.
  • Information Culture in higher education context: theoretical contributions

    • Abstract: Resumen La cultura de la información (CI) surge de crear flujos de información para optimizar procesos comunicativos dentro de una organización, paralelo al desarrollo de tecnologías de información y comunicación y a una serie de contribuciones de distintas disciplinas que dieron origen a este fenómeno. El proceso de analizar y comprender su complejidad remite a su estudio desde diversas perspectivas, dada la multidisciplinariedad que la caracteriza. El objetivo de esta investigación es contribuir con aportes teóricos al campo de estudio de la CI en el ámbito educativo, específicamente desde el nivel superior y desde el enfoque del acceso y uso de información. El análisis conceptual se realizó con metodología de corte cualitativo, la cual permitió identificar elementos semánticos generados desde el contexto organizacional y cómo éstos se insertaron en el entorno educativo. Se utilizó el método de comparación constante (MCC) a partir de la integración teórica del campo intelectual creador (CIC). Los resultados confirman una relación de elementos que transitaron del campo organizacional a los procesos de aprendizaje de educación superior, donde a dichas instituciones les corresponde implementar estrategias para el desarrollo de habilidades en el acceso y uso de información como componentes vitales de CI.Abstract Information culture (IC) arises from information flows to optimize communication processes within an organization, parallel to development of information and communication technology and a series of contributions from different disciplines that gave rise to the phenomenon. Process of analyzing and understanding its complexity refers to its study from different perspectives; given the multidisciplinarity that characterizes it. The purpose of this paper is to provide theoretical contributions to the field of study on IC in educational field, specifically from higher education level and approach of access and use of information. Conceptual analysis was carried out with qualitative methodology, which allowed to identify semantic elements generated from organizational context and how these were inserted in educational environment. Constant comparison method (MCC) was used from theoretic integration of creative intellectual field (CIC). Results confirm some elements that went from organizational to higher education learning processes, where these institutions are responsible for implementing strategies for development of skills in access and use of information as vital components of IC. Additionally, value of information as intellectual capital is argued and it is established as a conclusion that, implementation of IC emerges from generation of intellectual capital and the fact that this is monitored and measured or quantified in systematic way, it can be affirmed that there is a consolidated IC.
  • Approaches to the study of podcast as a born digital sound document

    • Abstract: Resumen La era dorada del pódcast sonoro es la forma como se califica a la segunda década del siglo XXI. Este periodo se caracteriza por la proliferación, diversidad y amplia distribución de este tipo de materiales sonoros, que son evidencia de la creación, pensamiento y expresión artística de la sociedad. El pódcast, además de ser un medio a través del cual se transmite información audible, es un tipo de documento de origen digital cuya naturaleza documental ha sido poco estudiada. Este artículo tiene como objetivo determinar algunas de las características del pódcast como documento sonoro de origen digital y con ello contribuir a establecer las bases para su preservación. Para ello, se presenta el marco conceptual, el origen y evolución del pódcast, se define la estructura y el soporte del pódcast como objeto digital, se alude a su relevancia como medio que aborda contenidos de actualidad e interés social, y se señala el riesgo de pérdida de este tipo documental.Abstract The golden age of the sound podcast is how the second decade of the 21st century is described. This period is characterized by the proliferation, diversity and wide distribution of this kind of sound materials that are evidence of the creation, thinking and artistic expression of society. The podcast besides being a medium through which audible information is transmitted, is a kind of born digital document whose documentary nature has been studied very little. The purpose of this article is to determine some of the characteristics of podcast as a born digital sound document, and defines the structure and the medium of podcast as a digital object, referring to it as a medium that deals with current affairs and social interest and points out the risk of loss of this type of documentary.
  • Reading as a strategy for social inclusion in book fairs in the State of

    • Abstract: Resumen La investigación tiene como objetivo el análisis de la lectura como estrategia de inclusión social en las ferias del libro del Estado de México, para contar con un panorama que visibilice las realidades en relación al tema. Se realizó a partir de un enfoque cualitativo, el cual permitió analizar, dentro de las ferias del libro, las siguientes tres categorías: espacio físico, comercialización y actividades, a fin de poseer una visión interpretativa hacia el objeto de estudio. Como parte de los resultados se puede afirmar que la lectura como estrategia de inclusión social en las ferias del libro del Estado de México comienza gradualmente a vislumbrarse en ciertas acciones que se observaron a partir de las tres categorías antes mencionadas; sin embargo, esta manifestación parece ser de manera transitoria. Fundamentalmente es la parte comercial a la que se atribuye mayor ponderación y esto se puede ver desde la planeación que las respalda, ya que cada feria se organiza de acuerdo con un manual de expositores en donde prevalece la parte productiva y económica, dejando de lado a la feria como un espacio cultural que sirve para lograr, entre otras cosas, que la lectura propicie inclusión social.Abstract The research aims to analyze reading as a strategy for social inclusion in book fairs in the State of Mexico to have a panorama that makes visible the realities in relation to the subject. It was carried out from a qualitative approach, which allowed to analyze, within the book fairs, the following three categories: physical space, commercialization and activities, in order to have an interpretive vision towards the object of study. As part of the results, it can be affirmed that reading as a social inclusion strategy in the book fairs of the State of Mexico gradually begins to be glimpsed in certain actions that were observed from the three aforementioned categories, however this manifestation seems to be temporarily. It is fundamentally the commercial part to which the greatest weight is attributed and this can be seen from the planning that supports them since each fair is organized according to an exhibitors manual where the productive and economic part prevails, leaving aside the fair as a cultural space that serves to achieve, among other things, that reading fosters social inclusion.
