Administrative History:

At its 983rd session in December 2006, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe decided to redeploy the resources previously allocated to the library and outsource the library services. As a result of this, the central library collection was moved to the Bibliothèque nationale et universitaire de Strasbourg. The items that specifically focus on the work of the Council of Europe have been selected and compiled in a new archival collection on the Council of Europe.

The collection includes publications, articles, chapters of larger works, as well as doctoral thesis, published by independent sources external to the Council of Europe. The selected material presents, documents, discusses and evaluates the activities of the Council of Europe since its creation, covering the full range of areas the Organisation is concerned with.

Conditions governing access:

The collection consists of publicly accessible material.

Finding aids:

The collection is indexed in WebCAT, the online catalogue of the Archives, and can be consulted at the Archives Helpdesk.
