An academic portal specifically centred on abstracts and abstracting resources is proposed with the aim of mproving the information literacy skills of librarianship and information science students. The research to design it mainly consists of the selection, assessment and web-display of the most relevant abstracts on knowledge management, information representation, natural language processing, abstract/abstracting, modelling the scientific document, information retrieval and information evaluation. The result is the Cyberabstracts portal.
