At the end of 2003, a group of European Documentation Centres (EDC) started a project to archive electronic full texts published by EU Institutions on all Community policies. The focus is on working papers, reports, studies and grey literature, which are scattered on many different EU websites and not permanently accessible.
In 2005 the ArchiDok partners joined Academic LinkShare (ALS), a network of different university and research libraries offering internet portals on various topics.
In 2021 the ArchiDok database was discontinued. The records have been integrated into the database of the EDZ Mannheim and are still searchable. The full texts of the documents have been deactivated. If you are interested in the documents, please contact the EDZ Mannheim directly by email.
