Abstract

Information communication between the library and the extension in the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa).

The exponential increase of information available and the potential mechanisms for storage and recovery made clear the need to extend the traditional concept of reference services/ mediation of information from libraries. The offer of information is located at the intersection of two fields of information science: the study of demands for profiles, and the organization, processing and availability of information for effective use. This work aims to present the experience related to the development of a project Embrapa Library System (SEB), whose main objective was to build interactive strategies of dissemination of knowledge generated by the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa). This project first resulted in a diagnosis of the extension in the state of Rondônia, which supported the creation of online and offline customer service in libraries, creating an information channel with news about the world of scientific and technological information and training for extension in the use of database and digital repositories of Embrapa.
