OBJECTIVES: 
Provide an academic forum for international projection in which to make themselves known, analyze and discuss results, problems or lines of research scientists of information to our Ibero-American region have worked and reflect an original contribution to the development of librarianship thought and Documentary Information science.

JUSTIFICATION: 
Despite the advent of so -called "knowledge societies" worldwide, it is impossible not to observe an inequality in the division established in the construction and use of knowledge: a minority of North and marked British influence using the language English as a medium of communication, are those who construct knowledge; and the vast majority south, or do not belong to the cultural elite, are consumers or in the best case, only become followers of the research marked by preponderant scientists and to validate their results, They feel the need to publish in "recognized journals" and finally they belong to the dominant circle. The situation occurs in the documentary informative level, where often the positivist approach, instrumentalist therefore marked by the Information Science of Anglo - Saxon origin, demand efficiency, effectiveness and regularity in the organization and information retrieval model that is emulated by many researchers in our region.

However, we must recognize that not all Latin American scientists are breeding or simply apply the pragmatist-utilitarian model in Library and Information Science Documentary.

Just as it is easy to find contributions of scientists, artists and thinkers in the Ibero - American art, natural sciences, social sciences and humanities, there are also original approaches and results in this area that studies the documentary information process. Even when it departs from a positivist approach, it is possible to provide an interpretation, a deepening relationship with other knowledge were seen in its original version.

That is why we decided to call Latin American students of this area of knowledge to present their research containing ideas or new results and let go forming an "Ibero-American School of Library Science documentary information", not in the sense of constitute a single thought and even with which everyone can agree, nor with the meaning it is valid only in and for the region; but with the intention of identifying a body of knowledge developed by Ibero - American thinkers and is recognized internationally.
