MARCOS RECIO, Juan Carlos. Towards distant education in library science: some proposals for Mexico and Spain. Investig. bibl [online]. 2006, vol.20, n.40, pp.73-120. ISSN 0187-358X.
The educational commitment of a government becomes real when the results of the educational system reach important degrees of quality and efficiency in the society. But previous knowledge of social, economic and, above all, educational components in all three main levels: educational institution, teachers and students, is required. Current studies are assessed and a possible evolution towards e-learning is presented determining advantages and disadvantages. The starting point is the current situation of resources used in Mexican library science education, with reference to some Spanish universities already working with these tools. The aim is to obtain information about courses, subjects and other elements related with distant education in order to know which technological applications are used by library science.
