English abstract

Several years of brainstorming, planning, meetings, writing, and hearings have culminated with this working guide for managers and line staff of government libraries. Guidelines are just that—advice, examples, and models of behaviours, services and best practices to be followed when they suit the situation. As indicated throughout the text, there is no universal solution or style, yet we hope that those presented here will foster creativity and promulgate ideas for adaptation in local settings.

Spanish abstract

Esta guía de trabajo para bibliotecarios y personal de bibliotecas gubernamentales es producto de muchos años de puesta en común de ideas, planificaciones, reuniones, borradores y sesiones. Las presentes directrices son sólo recomendaciones, ejemplos, modelos de comportamiento, servicios y buenas prácticas a tener en cuenta cuando la situación lo requiera. Tal y como se indica a lo largo del texto, no existe una solución o un estilo universal, sin embargo esperamos que estas directrices ayuden a impulsar la creatividad y a promulgar ideas que se adapten a las condiciones locales.
