university library - european documentation and research centreThe European Documentation Centre (EDC), covering an area of roughly 300 sqm., is currently located at the ground floor of the De La Salle University Library. It was conceived as a project of the European Commission in collaboration with the European Studies Consortium of the Philippines. The European Studies Consortium composed of De La Salle University (DLSU), Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), and the University of the Philippines (UP), signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the European Commission (EC) to promote European studies among a number of high level academic institutions in the Philippines, and to reach out to the Philippine business community in creating an improved awareness of the European Union (EU) as a business partner. It commenced its operation in June 1997 but was formally inaugurated on June 25, 1998.

The official status as a documentation centre for the EDC was granted in January 1998.
