Eurojust is the European Union judicial cooperation body. It was created in February 2002 with a view to reinforcing the fight against serious crime within the European Union
Eurojust is composed of 28 National Members, one from each EU Member State. These are senior and experienced judges, prosecutors, or police officers of equivalent competence, who together form the College of Eurojust. The College is assisted by the Eurojust Administration. In whole Eurojust is composed of some 220 post holders. It is based in The Hague (The Netherlands).
The Eurojust Library was established in 2003 and serves the information and reference needs of all Eurojust post holders.
The Eurojust Library develops, selects, purchases, catalogues, stores and disseminates information to all post holders on a proactive basis as well as by request. At the moment the collection includes over 3500 monographs and a wide range of hard copy and/or online subscriptions to journals, magazines and databases. Most of the collection is related to the operational task of Eurojust, which is the fight against serious crime, but also non-operational topics in support to the various Administration Units can be found such as HR or ICT related topics.
Inter-library loan service is available with the ECLAS - European Commission's Central Library - and the Peace Palace Library.
