Spanish congresses on library and information science: from the inevitable fragmentation to the necessary transversality

  • Abadal, Ernest
  • Baiget, Tomàs
The sophistication of society and the scientific specialization lead to the fragmentation of the groups and the audiences. With congresses happens the same and in this paper the organization of more general and cross-discipline conferences is proposed. A review of the evolution of the congresses and their characteristics over the past 15 years in Spain is done. In the annex the main Spanish congresses are listed.

  • Abadal, Ernest
  • García-Abad, Francisca
  • Melero, Remedios
  • Rodríguez-Gairín, Josep-Manuel
The major events in Spain during 2009 in the field of Open access to science are described and contextualized with the international environment. We offer 2009 statistical data and discuss the main achievements in three broad areas: repositories, journals and policies. The report ends with the 2010 prospects for each of the areas.

New workflows in a digital newsroom: the case of TVE’s informative services

  • Aguilar-Gutiérrez, Manuel
  • López-de-Solís, Iris
The arrival of the digital revolution has modified TVE’s production system, as occurred in other broadcast companies all over the world. This essay offers a view of the daily workflows in a Spanish national television newsroom, and how the work-team manages information used to produce daily news programs. Media librarians are responsible for dealing with the incoming media and creating metadata and locators to facilitate searching/recovery processing and guide the department responsible for media selection and transfer to the digital library. In this digital newsroom, a new professional profile, the media manager, has emerged to manage the production and broadcasting servers. Media librarians who work in these environments must have a broad general knowledge of all the processes involved, as well as the work done by everyone who participates in them and the tools that are used.

Thoughts and best practices on the personal pages in the academic webspace

  • Aguillo, Isidro
The Web is an important source of information in the academic sector, although many professors and researchers still do not maximize its potential. Missing or poor content is especially common on many personal or group sites. We propose a model with large and diverse content, strongly interlinked to represent the author’s network of contacts and experiences, and with a statistics system to monitor the number of visits and visitors. These pages can be complemented with Web 2.0 tools, but always subordinated to the personal page contents.

Dr. Paper & Mr. Web

  • Aguillo, Isidro
The critical attitude of many scientists and information professionals to the information published in the academic web, which is usually less valued than that available in scientific journals, is surprising. The article proposes that the Web should be taken seriously and techniques be developed for describing and evaluating the quality of web resources, which offer an opportunity for information professionals and users like students, scholars or researchers. Traditional document analysis is suggested, with the added value of describing the electronic address, size and format and using the possibilities of link analysis. Finally, the usefulness of the free bibliographic databases like Google Scholar and Scirus is discussed.

Intimacy in Television Programs: Adolescents’ Perception

  • Barandiaran, Ana
  • Samaniego, Concepción
  • Morentín, Juan
Despite the negative criticism leveled at them, certain television genres which treat intimate problems and issues as a kind of spectacle may also help adolescents learn how to cope with interpersonal situations and gain awareness of key social problems. This study focuses on examining the arguments that adolescents use to explain their possible participation (or lack of participation), either as guests or members of the audience, in Celebrity Gossip Shows (Salsa Rosa) and Talk Shows (Diario de Patricia), within the interpretative framework of Turiel’s theory (2002). To this end, interviews were conducted with adolescents from the Basque Autonomous Region and the answers given were grouped into three domains: conventional, moral or private. The results found show that the vast majority would not consider attending these programs for private reasons, and when asked to think in what hypothetical case they would consider participating, any change of opinion was always «Diario de Patricia» or almost always «Salsa Rosa» prompted by moral motives. All of those who said they would participate in the two programs justified their answer using conventional arguments. We can conclude that the adolescents participating in the study continue to value personal privacy, even in association with certain television programs in which the limits between private and public are transgressed.

What benefits do social networks give us?

  • Aleixandre-Benavent, Rafael
  • Ferrer-Sapena, Antonia
Social networks are a response to our need of communication. There are three types of social networks: those for the general public, for professionals and for scientists. This paper argues that the use of social networking is changing the meaning of the concept of “friend”, and that we have to be careful to preserve our public image in these networks. In general purpose networks, personal and professional issues are intertwined, and this is used by some marketing companies. The Web 2.0 collaborative media tools can be used to achieve advances in science, which is essentially collaborative, but this potential use faces a serious drawback because scientists prefer to communicate their work in scientific journals.

Electronic medical records in Spain

  • Aleixandre-Benavent, Rafael
  • Ferrer-Sapena, Antonia
  • Peset, Fernanda
This paper discusses the current state of computerization of health information in Spain, where the priorities include the establishment of an electronic medical record that integrates all information about patients, makes it universally accessible and ensures the ethical use and confidentiality of the information as well as the privacy of individuals. To implement this change, it is imperative to combine the existing information systems of different health areas that perform in isolation. Although the Spanish government has launched an online health project to achieve this goal, there are still difficulties due to the lack of resources and infrastructure and a few barriers between the Spanish autonomous communities that must be overcome.
