What they say about us

  • When information is current, it circulates, it passes around and it does not get lost. There is no need of special measures to preserve it. When it loses validity it disappears, unless it finds shelter in libraries or archives. PADICAT is the digital information shelter through which we will not lose our memory.

  • Thanks to PADICAT, Catalonia plays in the "Champions League" of digital heritage management. PADICAT will avoid that in the future we get more information from the press of the XIXth century than from the blogosphere of the XXIst.
