ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


BASIC SKILLS CB8 That students be able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgments from information that, incomplete or limited, includes reflections on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments CB9 That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the latest knowledge and reasons that support them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way CB10 That students possess the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous. GENERAL COMPETENCES CG1 Understand the impact of new digital environments on libraries, archives and other documentation services, as well as the role of information and documentation professionals and experts in this technological and social context. CG2 Identify lines of technological innovation in libraries and archives and documentation centers, and undertake possible projects for their development. The CG5 Recognize the growing importance of teamwork in the world of work and demonstrate adaptability and integration in different work environments, maintaining relationships and communication flows. CG8 To value the rigorous and well-done work, in planning, organizing and developing one's own activities, demonstrating initiative, creativity and sense of responsibility, maintaining interest throughout the process, and feeling personal satisfaction with the results achieved. CG9 Integrate knowledge, make judgments and communicate their conclusions, as well as the latest knowledge and reasons that support them, to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way. CG10 Recognize the need for continuous adaptation to different jobs in different productive sectors, and technological and organizational innovations related to the profession, showing interest in incorporating new techniques, processes, tools and techniques into the profession's own activities. technologies. SPECIFIC COMPETENCES CE1 To know and analyze the current state and future prospects of technological progress and their application in libraries and archives. CE5 Examine the main security problems of network information, as well as the knowledge of the protection systems existing in this digital environment LEARNING OUTCOMES This subject focuses on training students in the various technical and legal aspects of the resources that determine the tools to support information tasks and documentaries. A crucial aspect of training is that students acquire the skills necessary for the implementation of digital document management projects (EDRMS). To this end, the student will be given the necessary skills to plan, analyze and manage the implementation of an appropriate solution to typical scenarios within the framework of digital continuity and access to information in networks. It will be trained in basic skills to evaluate different technological alternatives for the creation of EDRMS ensuring their access by users and authorized institutions. The student after passing the subject must: To design and evaluate initiatives and strategies of application of management of large volumes of data in public and private organizations Know Data related tasks regarding data debugging and interoperability. To apply techniques to elaborate studies and reports that allow analyzing and evaluating the data management in an organization. Know and understand the objectives of information security and the threats and vulnerabilities of information systems. Know and understand the problems of authentication and integrity of the electronic document and the tools to guarantee them. Know and apply the legal regime of administrative transparency and public information. Understand and apply the legal regime of information and documentation in public organizations on storage media. Select open source or commercial tools for the implementation of efficient and efficient document and file management systems. Analyze the most relevant technological resources in the treatment of digital information. Use and apply the necessary methods, techniques and tools in the implementation, development and exploitation of digital information systems and services.
