Abstract

Information Science aims to promote the organization of information, as well as the access to and dissemination of this information by means of the different technologies applied to information and communication platforms, with a focus on scientific and professional practices in both individual and social spheres. Hence comes the need of its insertion in the fields of Information Theory (structure) and Communication Theory (message). This research project has as its goal to identify and discuss the trends in the field of digital information management and organization, with a special interest in those that influence the context of digital libraries; and to study the innovations proposed by the use of information and communication technologies which enable the creation and perception of value by information users in processes of search for, access to, retrieval and appropriation of information on the Web of Data. The development of this research project will contribute to a better understanding of collaborative technology resources used in Web-based digital informational environments. The insertion of these technologies consists in innovations that challenge information professionals in the digital era. (AU)
