English abstract

The objective of this study is to analyze the way that libraries and their information services are involved as mediators in Learning Communities in libraries and classrooms and how knowledge is constructed. The precedent of this research is a PhD project where the library is conceived as a learning community within the framework of social relations and the construction of knowledge. The type of study is analytical and descriptive. Result, after to describe the features, functions and products of libraries, we found how information skills are developed in students and how they built the tacit and explicit knowledge. From this contribution we propose a model to design the library as a Learning Community.
