English abstract

To identify sex differences in the use patterns of internet and analyze the undergraduate students' opinions about their performance using internet tools, the author used an opinion survey with a sample of 101 undergraduate students (44 male and 57 females) enrolled in the Librarianship and Information Science School from a Peruvian university. To analyze the internet perception the author validated the instrument designed by Ford & Miller (1996). The main results were: 1) There were no significative sex differences, between men and women, in relation to the use patterns of internet. 2) Using the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) the author identified five internet use behaviors, which explains the style used by the undergratuate students.

Spanish abstract

Se utilizó una encuesta de opinión en una muestra de 101 estudiantes de pregrado 44 varones y 57 mujeres de la Especialidad de Bibliotecología y Ciencias de la Información de una universidad peruana, con el propósito de identificar, según el sexo de los encuestados, los patrones de uso de Internet y de analizar la percepción de los estudiantes sobre su desempeño frente a las herramientas ofrecidas por Internet. Para estudiar la percepción sobre Internet se adaptó el instrumento diseñado por Ford y Miller (1996). Entre los principales resultados se destacan los siguientes: 1) No se encontró diferencias significativas, entre hombres y mujeres, en cuanto a los patrones de uso de Internet. 2) El Análisis de Componentes Principales (ACP) permitió identificar cinco conductas de uso de Internet, lo cual permitió caracterizar la manera como el usuario aborda Internet, sobre la base de la capacidad de manejo y la utilidad percibida de las herramientas y servicios de Internet.
