ECMI Library Networking Cooperation
The ECMI Library participates in library networks on the regional, national and European level.
On the regional level, the ECMI Library participates in regular meetings of the German-Danish Library Forum in which issues relating to library matters in this region are discussed, such as for example library staff exchange between Denmark and Germany, events such as conferences for librarians, as well as lectures from famous authors, and etc.
On the national level, the ECMI Library participates in regular meetings of the Information Network International Relations and Area Studies. This Network maintains the online database World Affairs Online. The ECMI Library indexes all ECMI publications, including chapters of the European Yearbook of Minority Issues, JEMIE articles, and all ECMI Issue Briefs, ECMI Working Papers and ECMI Reports, as well as relevant journal articles, including also for example articles from European Diversity and Autonomy Papers [EURAC] in World Affairs Online. Where possible, links to full text of articles are included in World Affairs Online.
On the European level, the ECMI Library participates in EINIRAS, the European Information Network on International Relations and Area Studies. EINIRAS is an association of European research institutions that deal with information and documentation on international relations and area studies in research and political practice. The long-term objective of EINIRAS is to establish a common European data-base on international relations and area studies.
In addition to the above, the ECMI Library has written library exchange agreements (Memorandums of Understanding) with the OSCE HCNM Library, the SIPRI Library, the EURAC Library, the Library of the Südostinstitut and the IFSH Library in order to promote resource sharing.
