PARADA, Alejandro E.. Opening the Library and Information Science to Humanities and Social Sciences: Meeting point at the 120 years of FILO [Filo: 120]. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2016, n.34, pp.5-10. ISSN 1851-1740.

In this Editorial, on the occasion of the 120th anniversary of creation of the Facultad de Filosofía y Letras at the Universidad de Buenos Aires [Filo: 120], the contributions of Library and Information Science (LIS) are analyzed to disciplinary field of Human Sciences. The LIS, precisely because of its rich duality between the Humanities and Social Sciences, is set as an area in a “state of openness” to these fields. Among the various points of confluence or cultural articulations that this discipline can provide, the following are mentioned: the breadth of its concept of “shared territoriality”; its ability to foster “creative marginality”;  its intentionality manifested by the multidisciplinary practice; its professional practice of bibliographic and regulatory nature; its discursive coherence to avoid fragmentation and fragmentation of the objects of study; its close link with the academic and popular knowledge; among many others. The Editorial ends with a reflection on the ability of the LIS to link both transversely and diagonally, the whole of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
