Abstract

The aim of this investigation study is to perform a comparative analysis of study programs and plans taught in higher education schools in Mexico related with Librarianship,  and Information Sciences, regarding how students use the information, as well as to analyze how professors are involved in the ethical formation for the use of information. Authors like Luciano Floridi and Rafael Capurro, among others, have studied in depth the importance of Information Ethics in regard to its nature, scope, and purpose. However, the importance of analyzing the ethical use of information by the users, and moreover, in the professional education and training related with information has been set aside. Thus, a need to perform comparative investigations in the training schools of the future professionals of information in Mexico emerges for understanding the situation of the ethical use of information.
