English abstract

In recent years the agenda on research about information users has centered on the search for a theoretical foundation that made ​​more rigorous the research process and the search for the most appropriate methodology for the study of the various aspects of information search process. Regarding the theoretical foundation, it has been a proliferation of models for the study of these aspects, which has impacted positively on the research done in this field. Regarding methodology, it is possible to see greater diversity of approaches, unlike in the past. However, despite the significant achievements in the theoretical and methodological, a gap still exists as a result of unresolved motivations and needs that guide user research units information. In this situation, it is necessary to seek necessary and possible interaction between the process of user-centered research and management cycle of an information unit via a feedback to determine future courses of action, both in the field of research as in the management information units.

En los últimos años la agenda de investigación sobre los usuarios de la información ha estado protagonizada por la búsqueda de un fundamento teórico que dote de mayor rigor al proceso de investigación y por la búsqueda de la metodología más apropiada para el estudio de los diversos aspectos del proceso de búsqueda de información. Respecto al fundamento teórico, ha habido una proliferación de modelos para el estudio de estos aspectos, lo cual ha repercutido de forma positiva en la investigación realizada en este campo. Respecto a la metodología, es posible observar mayor diversidad de enfoques, al contrario que en épocas pasadas. Sin embargo, a pesar de los importantes logros en el ámbito teórico y metodológico, todavía existe una brecha no resuelta como resultado de las motivaciones y necesidades que guían la investigación del usuario de las unidades de información. Ante esta situación, es necesario buscar la interacción posible y necesaria entre el proceso de investigación centrado en el usuario y el ciclo de gestión de una unidad de información por medio de un feedback que determine líneas de actuación futuras, tanto en el ámbito de la investigación como en el de la gestión de unidades de información.
