Abstract

Library services for indigenous societies in Latin America

Library services for indigenous societies in Latin America have been explored and implemented since the late 90s of the past century. From a LIS perspective, theory and methodology on this particular topic still need to be built and developed, and the experiences themselves need to be thoroughly collected, examined, systematized and divulgated; however, their potential importance in the continent's LIS scenario has been already recognized, especially considering the high number of users that may benefit from such services in countries like Mexico, Guatemala, Peru or Bolivia. Even if most of these experiences are now over, some of them are still in place ― and all of them have something to teach to future generations of LIS professionals, both inside and outside the continent. This paper presents some of them.
