EU Bookshop now searchable through Primo

EDC Information Update

EUBOOKThe EU Bookshop is an online bookshop, library and archive of publications from the EU institutions and agencies going back to 1952 and includes work produced jointly with partner institutions. Most publications can be downloaded in pdf format free of charge.

If you are familiar with this resource then you may be aware that the site’s search facility can sometimes run a little slow. The good news is that you can now find EU Bookshop material using the ‘All Collections’ tab in Primo. Any EU Bookshop items that appear in your search results can be accessed by clicking the title, which will take you straight through to the Bookshop itself, where you can download a pdf of your document.

If you have any questions about Primo, the EU Bookshop or anything else library related, please get in touch with us by phone, email or in person.

FullSizeRender (5)

In the summer 2015, we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the last and most extensive refurbishment of the Taylor Library. To celebrate the occasion, the Taylor Library Team would like to present our readers with a short history of the library.

The article aims to follow the development of the site from the mid-1950s till today. It will outline the most important events, how the service improved and how the collections were enriched.

We guarantee that the old photographs that illustrate the story will capture your imagination.

You can read the full story on the library webpage:  http://www.abdn.ac.uk/library/about/taylor/a-short-history-of-taylor-libr/

Closing down of the PreLex website

Presentation1

As of 15 December 2014, PreLex, the website for EU legislative procedures and decision-making processes between institutions, is closed. The information is now available on the EUR-Lex website, under the ‘Legislative procedures’ tab. EUR-Lex is thus the single access point to all legal acts, including their whole life cycle from the very first proposal up to publication. If you have any links or bookmarks, please update them.

New look Public Information Online website

The Public Information Online website has recently been re-designed. The site is a one stop shop for information from Westminster, the Scottish Parliament, Northern Ireland and the Welsh assemblies. The people at PIO have recently produced some new promotional material too. Have a look at their video:

…and their brochure for more information.
