HINOJOSA ALVAREZ, María del C.; SERRA LARIN, Silvia; GUTIERREZ SOTO, Tania  y  LUIS GONZALVEZ, Isabel Pilar. The documentary acquisition through international projects as a strategic element in the development of collections. Rev Cubana Hig Epidemiol [online]. 2014, vol.52, n.2, pp.278-285. ISSN 1561-3003.

Acquisition of scientific literature, mainly monographs is a must for the development of collections in any information organization. In this regard, the objective of the present article was to present the experiences gained in acquiring documentary sources by means of research projects in 2013. A documentary review on the topic ¨development of collections¨ in specialized journals in Scielo and Medline databases was made; the final result was several articles dealing with the process of selection and acquisition of health documents, which stated that this is one of the most important processes in any information organization. This is an effective instrument to adapt the available resources to the immediate informative and documentary offer at the market and to the satisfaction of the information requirements of users. There was no article that made particular reference to the documentary management through international projects as strategic tool. In every information organization, the document selection and acquisition is fundamental because the collections are the basis for services covering the users´ information needs. This paper offered the listing of 52 titles of documentary sources recently acquired through this pathway on the themes: health microbiology, parasitology, health economics, epidemiology, public health, international health, biostatistics, environmental health, sociology applied to medicine, social determinants of health, immunology and nutrition, among others.

Palabras clave : collection development; documentary selection/acquisition; international project management; health information management.
