Electronic Information For Libraries (EIFL) Consortium

Electronic Information For Libraries (EIFL) works with libraries worldwide to enable free and open access to digital information in developing and transition countries. It is an international non-profit organization based in Europe with a global network of partners. EIFL was founded in 1999.

Today, EIFL partners with libraries and library consortia in more than 55 developing and transition countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Their focus is on enabling free and open access to knowledge for education, learning, research and sustainable community development. Access to knowledge is fundamental to education and research, the improvement of lives, and the creation of human capital upon which the development of societies depends.
