The European Commission Library and e-Resources Centre has a wealth of  information on EU integration, law and policies.  Although primarily used by staff working in EU institutions, the library’s search tool Find-eR is a great way for university staff and students to identify useful sources for their research. Find-eR searches the library’s collection of books, open access papers and e-journals. Some of the online material is freely available with some more available to University of Aberdeen staff and students through our own library’s electronic subscriptions.

In addition, in some instances, it may be possible for UoA staff or students 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.

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.
