Eureka: Overview

What is Eureka?

Do you remember the old library catalogue? Eureka is that and much more. Eureka is the Council Library's discovery service. This means that in Eureka you can:

  • Search and browse the library's collections, not only books and journals but also databases, book chapters, articles, references... physical and online.
  • Reserve books and renew your loans
  • Save searches, set alerts, save your favourites...

You will find the link to access Eureka in the Council Library webpage and Library Blog and in Domus. with your mobile, you can scan this QR

What you can search & find

Eureka includes the collections of the Council Library, the Language Library, the Staff Library, the Learning Resources Center and the Legal Library. As a result, it offers different scopes

  • Everything: the whole catalogue and all the indexes.
  • Online: online resources only
  • All Council Libraries: physical material of all the five libraries of the Council
  • Council Library: physical material of the Council Library
  • Language Library: physical material of the Language Library
  • Legal Library: physical material of the Legal Library
  • Staff Library: physical material of the Staff Library
  • Learning Resources Center: physical material of the Learning Resources Center
  • Council Bibliographies: material that is related to the Council of the European Union and the European Council
  • Think Tank Review: material that is featured in the Think Tank Review (a monthly selection of EU-related papers published by think tanks across the world)

The Library guides are not exhaustive. They contain selected resources from the online Eureka catalogue of the Council Libraries but also titles beyond our collections, including open-access publications. The Library guides do not necessarily represent the positions, policies, or opinions of the Council of the European Union or the European Council.
