This paper deals with the need to define the public administration sector as a major provider of Web-based job-placement resources in the field of corporate information management for Spanish graduates in librarianship and information science. The Web as an instrument of information dissemination gives the citizen who uses it many advantages. Unlike other information services where the flow of information is targeted at a specific part of the population, the Public Administration Sector generates information that is, or should be, useful to any citizen, regardless of his or her situation or profession.
