Depository Libraries in the U.S.

iStock_000015038689Small

The European Union has established a network of depository libraries across the US to provide Americans with access to many of its official publications. All depositories automatically receive, free of charge, one copy of most EU periodical and monograph publications. The collections are available to the public during each library’s regular hours of operation, free of charge and without any conditions. Many of the libraries also offer interlibrary loan services.

The official publications contain information ranging from policy developments in all sectors of EU activity to statistics on trade, demographics, agriculture, transport, energy and economic indicators.

Of particular importance is the Official Journal of the European Union, the approximate equivalent of the US Federal Register.

The Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) is the official compendium of EU legislation (L series) and other official documents of the EU institutions, bodies and agencies (C series and its supplements). Find out more about the OJ.

Effective  July 1, 2013, the electronic edition of the OJ (e-OJ) is authentic and produces legal effects. Find out more about the e-OJ.

Annual indices and the Directory of Community Legislation in Force provide subject and numeric reference access to legislation.

Depositories also hold the legislative proposals and communications of the Commission in their original “COM” document form, as well as reports and debates of the European Parliament (also available on EUROPARL), opinions of the European Economic and Social Committee and decisions of the Court of Justice (also available on Curia). European Documentation Centres elsewhere in the world may be found here.
