College Libraries & ICT
The Libraries of the College of Europe in Bruges and Natolin (Warsaw) are linked to document delivery services and electronic information networks worldwide. A high priority is placed on easy access to electronic information resources and multimedia facilities, with online access to the Library catalogues available across both campuses. In addition to electronic information, both libraries also hold important print collections and extensive periodicals back-runs.
The main fields covered are law, economics, and political and administrative sciences, with some holdings also in social sciences and contemporary history relevant to the development of Europe. In Natolin, there is a particular emphasis on EU accession and post-accession issues and on issues relating to relations with the EU's new neighbour states, such as Ukraine and Russia. A key resource is the College’s Netguide of weblinks to sites specialising in European information.
The libraries host comprehensive EDCs (European Documentation Centres) - part of a worldwide network of such centres which specialise in official information from the European Union. Both libraries also have ready access to information from the Council of Europe, the OECD and other international organisations. In addition to online information access within each Library and EDC, there are dedicated Computer Rooms on both campuses offering full scale internet, e-mail, and word-processing facilities to students.
The College of Europe has an up-to-date ICT infrastructure on both campuses, providing students with the best possible facilities for carrying out their day-to-day work. The Computer Rooms offer unlimited Internet access, and high volume black-and-white and colour printers. The IT services provide students with telephone and network services.
