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's collection was moved to the Bibliothèque nationale et universitaire de Strasbourg. Items that specifically focused on the work of the Council of Europe were selected and used to create a new archival collection on the Council of Europe.
The collection includes publications, articles, chapters of larger works, as well as doctoral theses, published by independent sources external to the Council of Europe. The material selected presents, documents, discusses, and assesses the Council of Europe's activities since its creation. It covers all of the Organisation's fields of activity.
Conditions Governing Access
The collection consists of publicly accessible material.
The collection is indexed in WebCAT, the Archives' online catalogue. It can be consulted by Council of Europe staff. (Fill in MSA form 1602).
Publications dating from 1949 to 2008 have been filed using an internal subject classification system. Since 2009, they have been filed chronologically by date of publication.
