Abstract: The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) was created in 1994, with its headquarters in Barcelona, as an initiative of the Catalan Government. It was set up from the very beginning as a fully Internet-based distance e-learning university, with a very specific model to deliver distance education (Duart and Sandrà 2000; Cobarsí 2008). Keeping into account such organizational features, the UOC was called to be a key actor in LIS distance education. With this goal in mind, a new undergraduate degree in LIS (Llicenciatura en Documentació) was set up in 1999.
