European Union Resources - Teacher's Workshop 2009: Europa and More

A guide to online resources for learning about the European Union.


Billed as "the Gateway to the European Union," Europa is the website of the European Commission and as such is available in 23 languages.  It provides a great number of online EU resources, including links to the sites of the various EU bodies and institutions, links to sources of EU documents of all kinds, subject access to activities of the EU, and links to a number of on-line services provided by the EU.

Discovering More European Union Resources


The public has access to the WorldCat bibliographic catalog.  This resource includes 1.4 billion items according to its web site.  Do a search for the term European Union, and look at the menu on the left side of the page.  If you go all the way to the bottom, you will see "Topic."  Click "Show More" to chose from other terms that will help you narrow down your search.

Of course, you can always use the CARLI I-Share catalog to search holdings in the State of Illinois.
