Services for Researchers

SEARCH ALL EUROPEAN BOOKS AND MORE

The European Library offers a number of services for researchers, including the ability to search and mine the Union Catalog of Europe’s National Libraries. Beyond that, we offer bibliographic information and content from many prestigious research libraries. In total, we allow you to cross-search over 200 million records simultaneously.

The breadth of our content, combined with high quality metadata and a central index, enables you to pinpoint the content you need quickly. Registered users will also be able to re-use high quality metadata for scientific purposes such as data mining via the API . See full documentation in API Documentation.

SIMPLE KEYWORD SEARCH AND BROWSE

MINING BY TIME AND SPACE

The search tools also provide the possibility to limit any search result by a number of facets. The user can select material from a specific country, or drill down to a particular time period of interest.
