Titulo del libro: Manual De Busqueda Documental Y Practica Bibliografica
Information society and knowledge society are denominations that appear frequently in the media and in the most diverse spheres, from academic to purely colloquial. These expressions refer to the current phenomenon of the vertiginous growth of the amount of circulating information with an unstoppable dynamic. The number of conventional publications (books, journals, etc.) has increased, as well as the number of academic publications (conference proceedings, doctoral theses, reports, etc.); On the other hand, the media (paper, CD-ROM, Internet) have multiplied and the means to get information about them have been expanded. In these circumstances, the student, the researcher or anyone concerned about being properly informed experiences a sense of frustration when you need to obtain documentation on a topic of interest. This Manual arises with a clear didactic vocation and to allow to solve the most pressing problems generated by this phenomenon, guiding the reader in a comfortable and simple way through the vericuetos of the documentary search. It is a useful work for anyone who needs to obtain some information and can not find a way to access it: the researcher who starts his PhD work, the student who develops a class work, the professional who faces daily control problems and document management. In short, it is an essential Manual to be able to develop any work in which the information is an important key. The work Practices of documentation, published by this same publishing house, is a complement to the documentary knowledge developed in this Manual that, through a set of exercises, allows the reader to apply the theoretical knowledge acquired.
