EUSA offers several things of interest to librarians:
(1) a quarterly newsletter with 4-6 reviews of new books and a regular column
listing "New EU-Related books and Monographs" in each issue;
(2) seven special interest sections with access to experts and resources in specialized areas of the field such as EU law, economics, public opinion and participation, EU pedagogy, and others; and
(3) our international conference, in odd-numbered years, where EU scholars, publishers of EU-related books, librarians, and government practitioners from the U.S. and the EU gather (next conference, March 31-April 2, 2005, Austin, Texas). EUSA also publishes, with Oxford University Press, the State of the European Union book series, a must for library acquisition. Volume 6, Law, Politics, and Society, has just been released by Oxford (September 2003). EUSA also sponsors the U.S.-EU Relations Project, with its monographs published by Brookings Institution Press. Friendly Fire: The Near-Death of the Transatlantic Alliance, by Elizabeth Pond, will be released by Brookings for EUSA in December 2003.
In these and other ways EUSA both supports and helps develop the field of European integration studies, worldwide, and is considered the best source of information about the field for scholars and practitioners. EUSA is unusual among scholarly associations in that its focus is on real-time, real-world events that continue to change and develop (as in the impending enlargement of the European Union from 15 to 25 countries).
