The European Commission Library has launched a new search tool: Find-eR. Find-eR, short for ‘Find electronic Resources’, makes it possible to search multiple library resources in one interface. It replaces ECLAS, the previous EC library catalogue.
Find-eR contains paper documents from the EC library collection, but also online journal articles and e-books. Consult the list of databases to see which sources are included. A list of Open Access resources is also available.
Start a basic search on the Commission’s Library and e-Resources Centre website (pictured above) or begin your search on the Find-eR homepage (pictured below). The ‘How to search’ page offers instructions on using the different search options. Although it is not always possible for non-EC staff to access the e-books or e-journals, Find-eR can be a handy tool to find references to useful publications. These references can be used to find the publication in the UvA Catalogue.
For more information on finding EU documents, please refer to the European Law research guide on the Law Library website.
