What they say about us

  • 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.

  • 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.
