About the Library

The European Commission's Library and e-Resources are a primary source of information on EU policies, history and integration. The principal users of the Library and e-Resources are the staff working at the European Commission and other EU institutions. Other user groups include university students, researchers and librarians who manage interlibrary loans. Until 2014, the Library's name was the European Commission Central Library.
