Abstract: Abstract The twenty-first century has brought about deep changes in the ways to communicate (1). The amount of information generated and spread through the Internet, the different ways to access, disseminate and make it known are in the origin of the new relationships between authors, editors, readers and information administrators (2). These changes have affected people both in their individual relationships and in the roles played by them (3, 4). The Virtual Library of the Andalusian Public Health Service was created in 2006 and, since then, the resources and services are accessible from any Internet-connected device. To know the competence of the RMI in the use of the digital information. A descriptive research was implemented through the use of a questionnaire provided to the RMI belonging to the specialty of Family and Community Medicine, Internal Medicine, Traumatology and Orthopedics. Some of the items included in the questionnaire: the type of publications consulted, the reading frequency, reading on the web, the types of informative sources, the personal bibliography management, the reading devices used, frequency of books purchase, type of virtual area to purchase e-books, frequency of critical reading programmed from the teaching unit, presence in social networks, types of profile in the social networks and dissemination of the contents on the web 2.0. The results show the digital reading habits in this group of professionals, who were born in the 80s and 90s (twentieth century). The RMI use the mobile technology to access the information but they don't know, to a large extent, the scientific reading and writing utilities and specific tools in the field of medicine and health sciences. Some skilled users, like the RMI, need a specific training which enables them to manage competently the information and the group of technologies and mediation procedures used in the process of research, management, operation, generation, editing, distribution and dissemination of information.
