Like most nations, Cuba has realized the value of computers and is trying to make them accessible to as much of the population as possible.
Cuba's advanced medical and biotechnology fields can make good use of computers, but shortages are present and their supply is insufficient.
Few people in Cuba have access to computers. The National Library houses no computers and most organizations lack them as well. Those who do have computers often have very obsolete systems.
However, many computer classes and clubs can be found in Cuba. The government wants to make as many people familiar with the use of computers as its short supply of them will allow.
The Palacio Central de Computación y Electrónica runs most of the computer training.
Anyone can communicate with Cuba via email. Cuba's Internet access is routed through Canada because of the problems with the US. Some people have reported difficulty in their email getting through to Cuba; we have successfully maintained correspondence with Cubans via email, though with considerable delay.
