In general, search and retrieve information, thanks to computer and manual methods and tools, that allow responding to the demands of users in optimal conditions of costs and terms, and evaluate the adequacy between the demand and the response provided, as well as determining and to evaluate the technological needs related to the management of documentary databases that may be of interest and useful at the present time or in the near future for the services and information units. And specifically:
1. Understand and know the definition of terms related to Information Retrieval (RI).
2. Understand and apply the principles and techniques for IR and its evaluation.
3. Know the theoretical models of information retrieval.
4. Handle with ease the different interrogation languages ¿¿and interfaces of information retrieval systems.
5. Interact with the information retrieval systems to solve the possible information needs that may arise.
6. Distinguish the different theoretical models of IR and recognize them in the Real Information Retrieval Systems (IRS).
7. Convert a request for information into a search strategy appropriate to the system and transcribe and transmit the results of a search.
8. Handle with ease, compare and evaluate different interrogation languages and interfaces that allow interaction with a local SRI or with engines, metasearch engines and other search tools in the network.
9. Master at least one software for information retrieval, advanced features, extended installation and recognized quality, which serves as a basis for the analysis and evaluation of any other.
10. Evaluate the results of a search in terms of reliability and relevance, in any environment of use of an SRI.
