Educación y biblioteca, a unique professional journal

Pérez-Iglesias, Javier
The journal Educación y biblioteca (Education and the library) accompanied the Spanish public libraries in the great change that took place over three decades. Since the late 80s of the 20th century, Spanish libraries have undergone a process of modernization and engagement with their audiences. Educación y biblioteca encouraged these changes and brought together a stream of librarianship committed to social action by libraries, public service values and the democratization of culture. During its existence, Educación y biblioteca was open to all librarians, who used it as a forum to discuss projects and share best practices. As a private and independent project it offered a collaborative work experience and networking.
