The first European Documentation Centre (EDC) was officially opened at the Faculty of Economics within the University Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje in 1995. Lately the EDC was renamed and rebranded in EUi. In 2009 2 new EUi-s were opened at the Faculty of Administration and management of information systems in Bitola and at the South East European University in Tetovo.
The EUis are part of the worldwide net of European Information Centres.
The EUis are open to all the public of the country and the broader region. They provide services for the academic public, governmental bodies and institutions, non-governmental organizations, enterprises and other interested groups. Their resources include more than 1,500 publications and more than 10,000 volumes published by the European Commission, European Council, European Parliament and other EU institutions and organizations. The publications are electronically processed to create a database searchable by various criteria. The EUis also provides on-line and off-line services for all its users. They have a separate CD-Rom collection of legal EU documentation, statistical reference data and general information.
The main activities of the EUis are:
- Promotion and dissemination of information and documentation from and about the EU,
- Provision of information to the visitors (mainly, from the University campus),
- Support to academic and professional researchers,
- Co-operation and exchange of information with other EU relays
The EUis are open every work day, from 07:00 to 15:00(Skopje), 09:00 to 17:00 (Bitola), 08:00 to 16:00 (Tetovo).
All documents and publications are free to access, but cannot be removed from EUis premises.
