EIFL works with libraries worldwide to enable access to digital information in developing and transition countries. We are an international not-for-profit organisation based in Europe with a global network of partners.
Founded in 1999, EIFL began by advocating for affordable access to commercial e-journals for academic and research libraries in Central and Eastern Europe. Today, EIFL partners with libraries and library consortia in more than 60 developing and transition countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Our work has also expanded to include other programmes designed to enable access to knowledge for education, learning, research and sustainable community development.
EIFL-OA: open access;
EIFL-IP: copyright and libraries.
Access to knowledge for sustainable community development – helping to transform lives through innovative services in public libraries, EIFL-PLIP: Public Library Innovation Programme.
