The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief review of a project in Latin American university libraries.
The paper describes meetings, focus groups, and shared experiences.
Guidelines on institutional repositories have been published, and others are expected to appear shortly on information literacy and digital reference.
This work was based on experience, rather than objective assessment.
The guidelines are intended to win the support of university managers as well as their librarians, and tend therefore to be non‐technical.
If implemented, these guidelines will enhance the standing of university libraries in the region, as well as raise the level of professional practice and the contribution of university libraries to social and economic development.
