0608_sitios-recom.jpgEl mes pasado, en el marco de la Jornada sobre “Tecnología, cultura y educación“, la bibliotecaria, Silvina Sala, se refirió a los contenidos en la era digital. En esa línea, este mes nos ofrece el acceso a algunas colecciones de e-books — la mayoría, en inglés-  que  corresponden, en su mayoría, a grandes clásicos de distintas disciplinas.

Para completar de manera virtual nuestra propia biblioteca y consultar aquellos títulos de ayer y de siempre, vaya esta “colección online“, una buena alternativa para leer cosas buenas durante las vacaciones de invierno.
