European Union Information Research Guide

The European Documentation Centre provides information and expertise about the institutions, activities and policies of the European Union by way of helping researchers access EU documents and publications, databases and registers, archives, websites, news and reference sources.

The European Documentation Centre has been part of the EUI library since 1976 and is open to EUI researchers as well as to external users. Its print collection of official EU publications and documents, grey literature, academic books on EU institutions, as well as on international bodies such as the Council of Europe, is accessible through the EUI Library Catalogue.

A special system of arrangement was devised for the print documents and publications of the European Documentation Center (EDC) within the EUI library. An overview of the EDC classification system can be found here.
