BENITO MOYA, Silvano G. A.. Libraries and Books in the University Culture of Córdoba during the 17th and 18th Centuries. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2012, n.26, pp. 13-39. ISSN 1851-1740.
This is a study of the process of the development of library systems in colonial Córdoba (Argentina) from around 1609, the date in which the Jesuit Collegium Maximum was founded, to 1810 (the first decade of the Revolutionary period). Two stages of development are clearly defined, the period of Jesuit administration (1609-1767) characterized by the slow process of constructing the libraries, and later the expulsion, the Franciscan period (1797-1807) in which these orders came under the administration of the Junta de Temporalidades. The physical organization; the mental conception of the categorization of knowledge, the services that they provided and the role of librarians are some of the topics that are addressed.
