The Cubarte awarded Project, titled Sistema de recuperación de información para las bibliotecas públicas en el entorno virtual de la cultura cubana, (System of recovery of the information for the public libraries I the virtual environment) allows to recover the storage date in the information repositories of culture under the application of an architecture oriented to services.

It will widen the information possibilities offered all over the network of libraries in the country, including the municipalities. All of them were given surf rooms with the adequate technological equipment. This service is expected to be extensive to the Houses of Culture.

One of the ways for the Cuban public libraries to enrich its information services is the integrated access to the digital resources Cubarte, belonging to the Ministry of Culture, support in this Project.

Due to the wide volume of date they have, the more used network of information by the Cuban people are the public libraries. Because of the economic situation of the country, it is practically impossible to buy the system that integrates all the services of information. The solutions oriented to services, using free software, minimise the cost of the integration of the information systems.

The Project is in the testing stage and it is expected to be implemented this year along the network of Cuban public libraries.
