What is REDINED?

REDINED is a network of educational information that includes research documents, innovation projects and educational resources produced in Spain.

Its main objective is to collect educational publications and documents from our country to facilitate their preservation, dissemination and use.

Since its creation in 1985, REDINED has collected thousands of references and full text documents.

Due to its comprehensiveness, REDINED is an essential tool for initial training and further education of teachers and of great value to researchers, students and educational administrators.
