FERNANDEZ HERNANDEZ, Sandra  y  RIVERA, Zoia. The qualitative paradigm and its presence in the research of Library Science and Information Science. ACIMED [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.3, pp.6-30. ISSN 1024-9435.

Humanity evolves in its internal and external discussions, which reflect and contribute to the creation of specific modes of being and thinking. The art of researching does not escape from these modes, but favours their manifestation and expansion, which are generally associated with certain paradigms of research. The present study focuses on one of them: the qualitative paradigm. Starting from the conceptualisation of its specific characteristics, its presence in the research of Library Science and Information Science is studied and it is exemplified in the fields of information retrieval and user studies.

Palabras clave : Qualitative paradigm; Library Science; Information Science; information retrieval; user studies.
