EU Documents Library Now Available Online Back to 1952
The European Union announced the availability of all official EU publications since 1952 in digital format. News articles mention 12 million scanned pages and 110,000 publications available free of charge in the EU Bookshop Digital Library. The press release indicates the availability this way:
You will access them by selecting the option “Digital Library” in the search pages. Enjoy the reading!
The search feature at the Bookstore site is a tad confusing. Select the Advance Search option from the main page and the Digital Library option appears as a radio button selection near the bottom of the page. Publications are available in a wide variety of language. As they say, happy reading. Other reports indicate the archive will also be available at some point on Europeana, Europe's digital library of cultural materials. [MG]
