Europa World of Learning, TheDatabases
Europa World of Learning is a directory to all institutions in Higher Education in the world (not restricted to Europe): names of institutions, addresses, and managing personnel can be found.
All institutions for Higher education, irrespective of discipline, country, etc., are mentioned. Apart from the name of the institution, the address and the executives, some extra data are present, like telephone numbers, the age of the institution and some essential data (like the number of volumes in the case of libraries).
The database has information about more than 36,000 universities, colleges, schools of art and music, libraries, learned societies, research institutes, museums and art galleries, regulatory and representative bodies. It details more than 200,000 staff and officials and provides information on about 600 international cultural, scientific and educational organisations.
The Europa World of Learning is completely revised and updated throughout the year. Searchable fields include countries, institutions, and personal names. You can find the search button on the opening page, where also advanced searching is possible.
There is also an archive of essays which subscribers may download, taken from previous print editions of the The Europa World of Learning and covering a range of international academic themes.
