Complete digitisation of the Bulletin Quotidien Europe
Following an agreement with Agence Europe signed on 12 July 2018, the European University Institute Library has digitised and published online an archive of about 40 years of Bulletin Quotidien Europe (French edition), from 1953 to 1999 as well as the Europe Daily Bulletin (English edition), from 1979 to 1999. Researchers and historians have now digital access to over 150 thousand pages of searchable full-text facsimiles of Bulletins and Supplements published by Agence Europe between 1953 and 1999.
For the European University Institute Library this is an outstanding achievement. Two reasons for this: first, it provides researchers a complete coverage and access to an unmatched source of information with news, interviews, documents, editorials and in-depth analysis of European Union institutions, activities and policies. Furthermore, the digitisation allowed to preserve, as well as to complete, the one and only paper copy of the Bulletin Quotidien Europe held by Agence Europe, after its print inventory of back issues was destroyed in a warehouse fire.
