Buenrostro (2004) stated that in order to survive and prosper in the information era, reference librarians need to possess technology skills. They must possess information technology skills to be able to make use of the different library resources that vary in types and formats.
Torrijos (2000) discussed in her article presented at the 21st Gabriel A.
