Abstract: This article provides the preliminary results of an ongoing study on scientific collaboration in the European Union in the field of Library and Information Science. The analysis is based on output for the period 2010-2014, as indexed by Scopus. As it was considered essential to have a longitudinal view of the situation, we also analysed the output between 1990 and 2014 in 15 journals on the core of the discipline. No single area of knowledge dominated the output, and traditional LIS departments were not strongly represented. Only a small percentage of Italian authors of papers were affiliated with departments related to the world of libraries and non-IT aspects of the processing of documents and information. In the group of EU countries, the degree of cooperation was low, and was mostly national or even non-EU. Intra-community collaboration represented a mere 6.1% of the total. However, the percentages of both general and intra-community collaboration were slightly higher for Italy than for other countries.
