LAUDANO, Claudia Nora. Information, mass  media, and libraries: Analysis of public policies and professional practices. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2008, n.19, pp.63-77. ISSN 1514-8327.

The article presents results of two stages of a research made in La Plata city to gather the information resources coming from mass media, which are part of the collections of popular and public libraries. At the same time, the specific proceedings considered in public policies of the national, provincial and local State and the daily practices of librarians are analyzed. In the context of a discourse strongly based on the «information society», a set of thoughts about mass media considered from an instrumental perspective, where the technique dimension predominates in reverse relation to its valuation as information resources.

Keywords : Mass media; Information Resources; Libraries; Public Policies; Librarian Practices.
