European Documentation Centre (EDC)
State of the Union address by Ursula von der Leyen, 13th September 2023
The European Documentation Centre (EDC) of the Library was established in 1983 based on an agreement between Bocconi University and European Commission. It is part of a network which includes 600 centres across the world, mostly in universities, research centres and national libraries, with 400 of them in the Member States and 51 in Italy.
The EDC provides access to the European information for the University Community and general public, and offers:
- information and bibliography reference services
- access to the official EU databases
- books and journals (for consultation only)
- free booklets on European policies
The Bocconi EDC is member of the Editor's Group of abCDEuropa, the wiki guide of the Italian EDCs, and of cdeita, the national website of the Italian EDCs network.
The free publications and booklets by the European Union are available at the EDC Reading Room on the 1st floor of the Library. Reference and research assistance on European Union, EU databases and EU documents are available at the European Documentation Centre, on the 2nd floor of the Library.
For bibliographical research on the European Union and assistance with databases and EU documents, please contact the documetalist at the European Documentation Centre (2nd floor of the Library, room 209).
