Reminder the old EUR-Lex website is being shut down


prev version
EUR-Lex previous version: no longer available after the new year.

We told you last month that the old version of EUR-Lex will close on the 31st of December.


If you have hyperlinks in your work referring to the old website, please be aware there will be no automatic redirection between the old site and the current one. You will need to replace them with links leading to the new version of EUR-Lex.

If you need help using EUR-Lex The Publications Office has a YouTube channel with a number of useful EUR-Lex tutorial videos on it including this tongue in cheek one below.

In addition we have produced a guide to help you.


Search the European Commission libraries catalogue with Find-eR

The European Commission library has recently launched a new tool called Find-eR. Both user-friendly and quick Find-eR replaces ECLAS, the European Commission libraries catalogue.

The European Commission Library is a primary source of information on EU policies, history and integration. Although mainly used by staff working in EU institutions, university students and researchers can use it too. Both the library’s print and online material are catalogued.

Find-eR is primarily of use to university users as a way to identify useful sources, however, some of the online publications are freely available.  In addition, in some instances, it may be possible to borrow print material as an inter-library loan through the European Documentation Centre in Taylor Library.

It is also possible to request access to the reading room in Brussels or Luxembourg.

Why not have a look…
