The facilities of the University of Valencia and in particular of CIDEC. “The CIDEC, European Centre for Information and Documentation on Public, Social and Cooperative Economy, was created in 1989 by an agreement between the University of Valencia and the scientific association CIRIEC-Spain with the objective of developing a specialised information system organised around a specialised documentation centre that will support research and teaching. Currently CIDEC integrates a documentary specialised wealth composed of monographs, journals, doctoral thesis, reports of organisations and companies, yearbooks, videos, DVDs, CD-ROMs and others, making a total of more than 20.000 records. The resources in paper format now can be accessed easily through the new technologies of information and communication as evidenced by the fact that the catalogue of CIDEC funds can be accessible through its own website (, where you can search for articles of scientific journals, the first of its kind in the world, or the useful e-mail alert Service, which bimonthly reveals the latest bibliographies (including reviews), the new legislation and other legal provisions (regional, national and community) as well as other information of interest for its subscribers, Valencian men and women and of the rest of the world connected or interested in social and cooperative economy. Specialised information and assessment is provided to researchers, professionals of the sector, students and other people interested in this field, specially, in topics related to worker cooperatives, agricultural cooperatives, labour companies, non-profit organisations, social corporations, foundations and associations; as well as in occupational, social services, public policies and rural tourism topics. To achieve these objectives CIDEC develops information and documentation processing activities (bibliographical or not) and also activities related to searching, locating and accessing to the documentation related to the fields of Social, Public and Cooperative Economy, with the support of the own documentary resources such as the one that are accessible by electronic means thanks to the connections that CIDEC has with other centres. It has two permanent documentaries".
