Over the last few years there have been many changes within the information environment and, by extension, within archives, libraries, documentation centres and museums. We have observed that the effort made by professionals when defending and promoting their profession is constantly becoming greater, and therefore we must palliate our vulnerability before certain situations, towards where the commercial environment and lack of policies lead us.
This new scenario forces us to rethink our professional position in order to address one of our greatest missions: access to information based on respect for copyright and other issues, which seem to appear like insurmountable obstacles in order to complete it.
For this reason, the Spanish Federation of Societies of Archival Science, Library Science, Documentation and Museology (FESABID) and the Spanish Federation of Associations of Archivists, Librarians, Archaeologists, Museologists and Documentalists (ANABAD) have initiated a process of collaboration, by creating a work group in order to move forward towards creating an Information Sector Board. An interesting process of great importance, which could change the direction of associationism in Spain.
