SILVEIRA, Fabrício José Nascimento da and MOURA, Maria Aparecida. The aesthetic of reception and the practical of reading of librarian-indexer. Perspect. ciênc. inf. [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.1, pp. 123-135. ISSN 1413-9936. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-99362007000100010.
One of its richest fields of studies in Information Science is the reading practice of the librarian-indexer. It is verified that reading done by this professional places him/her as a mediator between the diverse textual materials contained in the library collections and its potential users. Aiming to further clarify this phenomenon in the context of Information Science, this article uses the theoretical framework conceived by the aesthetics of reception to analyze the reading performed by librarians in contexts of thematic representation. To do so, a dialogue is created with the basic concepts of the Aesthetics of Reception such as: expectation horizon, effect, emancipation and implied reader.
