Encouraging digitization of knowledge in Peru

By Bruno Ortiz (for El Comercio / Life & Future Column, Lima, Peru)

From now on, the academic and research output by Peruvian authors has a name and web space: Amauta, meaning “Inca Scholar”, which is the first centralized Peruvian digital repository available quick and free.  "In our country, there may be multiple digital repositories, but this would be the first which houses everything in one place, the work of 12 academic and research institutions that are properly organized," said the technical coordinator of this project, Libio Huaroto Pajuelo. For more information on this subject, read Sandro Medina’s comments.
With this electronic service, in which the latest research is featured, one can find theses and dissertations, research papers, monographs and other academic papers in digital format. "Each university is responsible for publishing and establishing guidelines or requirements for consultation by faculty," said Huaroto, who is Head of Information Systems in the Central Library at San Marcos University in Lima.
