MARTIN GONZALEZ, Yolanda. Digital Information Resources in European Documentation Centers: A case study from Spain. Investig. bibl [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.62, pp.29-51. ISSN 2448-8321.

The purpose of this paper is to provide a guide map for persons interested of information sources offered by the European Documentation Centers and specialized electronic resources in the European Union. The study examined thirty-seven centers in Spanish institutions of higher learning. The web pages of these institutions were thoroughly inventoried and categorized, allowing the researcher to conclude that European documentation centers, by virtue of the diversity of information sources they gather in one place, constitute an important tool for users wishing to search and retrieve information on the European Union. The research also revealed a bias in information centers for institutional sources and a conspicuous scarcity of information resources produced in the centers themselves.

Keywords : European Documentation Centres; European Union; Information sources; Electronic resources.
