Observing divergences and cultural similarities can bring benefit to communities and generate significant development. The purpose of the study was to verify the Cross Culture method and its applications, as an innovative methodology, in Information Science. The research has a qualitative approach, with a descriptive and exploratory type, using the Bibliographic Research method to collect data in national and international Information Science databases. The results showed that the method is still little explored by the area, and that most of the publications on the subject take place internationally, in the field of Information Management, Mediation and Use. The database in which the articles were most used of the cross culture methodology is Library and Information Science Abstract.
