Resumen

RAMIREZ VELAZQUEZ, César Augusto. Indigenous communities as information users. Investig. bibl [online]. 2007, vol.21, n.43, pp. 209-230. ISSN 0187-358X.

Indigenous communities as any other sector of society, are users of information and, therefore, have information needs and show specific information seeking. We must understand these characteristics in order to assist their development and as citizens exercise their right to information. In the present article these issues are reflected upon and results given of a research project in a Tepehua community of the Huasteca Hidalguense.

Palabras llave : Tepehua community; Information needs; Information users; Indigenous communities.
