WELCOME to the informal blog of the Central Library of the Council of the European Union, an information service for staff and delegates at the EU Council. If you are looking for official EU Council documents, the place to look is actually here. We will use this blog to engage with a wider audience and share new or topical information and research on EU affairs by means of our Resource Alerts.
We will also use it to disseminate – and discuss if you wish – the bibliographical and research products of the Library, such as the monthly review of think-tank publications, our online bibliography on the Council and the background notes we sometimes compile summarizing published information.
The Library has a reading room with monographs and journals in EU studies, political science and international relations from all EU Member States. The reading room and online resources are open to researchers on appointment.
The materials on these pages are primarily addressed to the staff of the Council of the EU. Some of the links may be accessible only from a subscribing institution. Any views expressed are the personal views of their author, they do not represent the position of the Council.
