Sustainable development goals


Spanish university students use a large amount of inf ormation from the Internet as well as a large nu m- ber of electronic resources. Given the problems ass o- ciated with the reliability and quality of the different resources and websites, it is important to check the level of penetration of specific tools to eva luate this kind of resources present on Spanish universities' websites , as it is common at English - speaking unive r- sities. For this purpose, a database was created in which data from 80 Spanish universi ties ( 50 public and 30 private) were included. The crit eria were the following : the system of the university ( if public or private ) ; the clear existence of library services; the presence of tools to evaluate website and electronic resources; and the language of the materials or guides. This kind of tools is us ually integrated in the libraries section. For this reason, the University L i- brary Network (REBIUN) and the official list from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports have been used as primary sources. This study has been co n- ducted on October 2012 an d April 2013. While 75 univ ersities hold library services — i ncluding services and access to different databases — , 5 universities lack library services. However, only 46 universities provide tools or guides to evaluate websites and electronic resources whil e 34 universities lack them. Although the main language for these tools is Spa n- ish, other national languages (Catalan, Galician and Basque) are identified
