In July 2007 Pitt's University Library System (ULS) received the entire
European Union depository collection?the most extensive collection of
public European Union documents and publications in North America?from the
Delegation of the European Commission to the U.S. in Washington, D.C. This
is essentially a "government documents" collection, containing over
16,000,000 pages published from the early 1950s to the present. The
collection reflects the activities and growth of the supranational European
Union over these years. It contains materials on most policy areas, such
as agriculture, education, energy, environment, external relations, public
health, transportation, etc. This collection is now available for use by
the public. The ULS is also digitizing a portion of this collection and
uploading it onto the ULS's Archive of European Integration, which is free
to all on the Internet.
This collection provides patrons with a very wide range of research
resources on the European community. Join today's lecture for an overview
of this development and its undergraduate implications. The lecture will
be complemented by appropriate afternoon refreshments!
