European Documentation Centre (EDC) Malta is a depository of EU publications. It is hosted by the Institute for European Studies of the University of Malta, at the main campus in Tal-Qroqq, Msida. It is a non-lending resource centre open to the academic community and to the public every day from Monday to Friday, from 0830hrs to 1230hrs and 1330hrs to 1630hrs. Originally opened in the early seventies soon after Malta signed an Association Agreement with the European Economic Community, the EDC today has a growing collection of books on European themes such as human rights, integration, law and politics. Books are purchased regularly throughout the year. The EDC’s collection is linked with the University's Main Library catalogue and some material is available both in the Main Library and in the EDC.
The EDC also hosts Bachelor and Master in European Studies exam past papers and student dissertations written in part-fulfilment of the degrees in European Studies offered by the Institute for European Studies. It is an ideal centre for obtaining information about the EU and for research. Publications for free circulation issued by the European Commission and other EU institutions are also made available to visitors at the entrance to the Centre. Signs on the campus ring road indicate the EDC's location.
The EDC has a free wi-fi service for staff and students of the University and two dedicated computer terminals for its users and also a photocopy and printing service. Periodically discussions, seminars and debates on European themes are organised at the EDC.
