REALC is a support tool for officials of ministries and departments of energy professionals and researchers interested in the environmental and energy sector in the Region.
The portal facilitates consultation and access to library materials in print and digital formats available in each center member of REALC.
Integrate a group of libraries and documentation centers focused on working cooperatively to facilitate free access to information resources that are public and therefore of free dissemination, where we become a support mechanism for professionals, researchers and students interested in energy and environmental matters in the Region.
