Eurolib, the collaboration group of libraries of the EU institutions, EU agencies and services, held its 2015 general assembly on 21 and 22 May at Cedefop in Thessaloniki, Greece. Discussions mainly focused on library management tools, collaboration and information sharing.

Chairing the Presidency of the Eurolib network since 2010, Marc Willem, Head of Cedefop’s Research support centre, presented a common European approach towards issues such as provision of access to EU documentation, EU publications and EU grey literature. A workshop focused on an important issue for all EU organisations: the setting-up of Open Access institutional repositories. The participants looked at practical issues, based on testimonials from Eurolib libraries and identified common challenges.

Follow-up actions will include a feasibility study and a technical meeting in autumn in Brussels or Luxembourg.
