BiblioInstruccion / Gerinaldo Camacho's curator insight, August 4, 10:46 PM
Estoy de acuerdo con la perspectiva de este artículo. Las bibliotecas y sus bibliotecarios poseen recursos en algunos casos únicos que pasan desapercibidos para la comunidad. Ademas sus bibliotecarios poseen un conocimiento de recuperar informacion o datos que de no compartirse se pierden. La web y sus herramientas permiten almacenar y disponer de esos recursos y/o conocimientos a la comunidad. La gestión del conocimiento, la curación de contenidos y el colocar los recursos accesibles (open link) son las bases para lograr una mayor presencia en la web de las bibliotecas.
