MENESES TELLO, Felipe. Libraries and society: interpretation about the social vision of the libray science in the thought of Judith Licea. Rev. Interam. Bibliot [online]. 2010, vol.33, n.2, pp.315-336. ISSN 0120-0976.

The interpretive approach of the social vision of Mexican librarian Judith Licea was carried out in three spheres. 1. Libraries and excluding society, 2. Libraries and the including society, 3. Libraries and plural society. The thought of Judith Licea around these dimensions was configured using two schemes that go from the general to the particular. This analysis concludes that the social library science viewpoint of the author makes it possible to weave a series of categories associated to what today is called social librarianship. In like manner that the homogenous idea in the sphere of library and information services should be abandoned to open the way for the differentiated idea. The study also shows that the professional librarians have a big challenge in the formal, informal and continuous process of learning and teaching.

Keywords : libraries and society; excluding libraries; including libraries; plural libraries; multicultural libraries; social library science; Judith Licea.
