What they say about us

  • Although paradoxical, Internet needs its own archaeologists. And PADICAT has built in Catalonia a strong "excavation" with the layers of these twenty years on Internet. That's a solid service to Catalan culture and to our country.

    Vicent Partal, director of Vilaweb
  • 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.
