PARADA, Alejandro E.. The other voice of the History of Libraries: A projection from Argentina and Latin America. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2018, n.39, pp.5-12. ISSN 1514-8327.

This editorial analyses several aspects of the History of Libraries in the area of Librarianship and Information Science, as well as in the Social Sciences. It is noted the importance of this field in the library training. A series of topics are suggested to approach this analysis from the Cultural History perspective and its encounter with the Political History. Finally, some fundamental concepts for the History of Libraries are approached, such as the processes of “continuity and discontinuity”, the “migrations and library articulations”, the “typologies of libraries” in the past, the “changes and traditions”, among others.

Keywords : History of Libraries; Librarianship and Information Science; Theorical aspects.
