European Documentation Centres
The European Documentation Centre network was set up by the European
Commission in 1963.
The purpose of this network is to serve the reference needs of
researchers, students and citizens. Therefore, EDCs are
contractually entitled to receive, free of charge, most
publications of the institutions of the European Communities.
There are now 394 such centres, mainly in universities.

of the EDC network.
