In this work we give public knowledge of a model that was built along the research carried out, with a view to assessing the management of information resources in open access (OA) and made the presentation of the results obtained by its application on a comparative study at the level of Higher Education Libraries (HEL) University and Polytechnic, public and private, in Portugal, more exactly on the online platforms such as Online Public Access Catalogs (OPAC) and Institutional Repositories (IR). For the construction of this model and its application to the HEL in Portugal, it was designed 3 dimensions with 9 indicators each, on a total of 27, adapted to the experience made explicit by authors who have tackled the topic of evaluation of Internet resources. However, this construction was especially based on personal experience and the benefits and difficulties detected in practical use of these platforms, in terms of personal, professional and academic level. Using this model, the comparison and analysis of the positive and negative elements found are made to suggest operating characteristics which could make the OPAC and RI platforms more reliable, simple and friendly, providing a quality service, accessible, and empowering their users with effective results, reversing the current trend of arbitrary use of existing information resources on the Internet. At the same time, the model aims to give clues that can protect the image and credibility of the institutions, giving them the visibility required in a world of increasingly competitive Information. The results obtained have provided an update regarding the OPAC and RI of the HEL in Portugal, which are described, throughout the work, with examples and conclusions obtained through quantitative and qualitative data, retreating still further information according to each type of HEL.
