The 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.
