English abstract

Throughout history, it took agriculture years to develop, to expand, and become known to most cultures. During the last 200 years, part of the humankind has been dominated by the industrial activity. While the rest of the world struggles to participate in the Industrial Revolution, some countries go through a stage that transforms everything in an extraordinarily fast way. It is what is known as “information society”. There is no doubt that society is entering a new era in which each aspect of people lives is characterized by the application of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). This article presents some changes that must take place in the education of library and information science professionals in this new environment.

Spanish abstract

A lo largo de la historia, el desarrollo de la agricultura tardó siglos en concretarse, en expandirse y en darse a conocer en la mayoría de las culturas. Durante los últimos 200 años, parte de la humanidad ha sido dominada por la actividad industrial. Mientras el resto del mundo se esfuerza por participar en la Revolución Industrial, algunas naciones atraviesan por una etapa que transforma todo de un modo extraordinariamente acelerado. Es lo que se conoce como “sociedad de la información”. No cabe ninguna duda, de que la sociedad está entrando en una nueva era, en la que cada aspecto de la vida de las personas se caracteriza por las aplicaciones de las Tecnologías de la Información y de la Comunicación (TIC). Se presentan, en este nuevo medio ambiente, algunos cambios que deben plantearse en la formación de los profesionales de la Bibliotecología y la Ciencia de la Información.
