EIFL in Latvia

EIFL has been working in Latvia since 1999. We engaged with the Culture Information Systems Centre,  and through this partnership, libraries in Latvia are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.

In Latvia, EIFL has supported national and institutional open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops which resulted in the launch of open access repositories. EIFL also supported advocacy for revisions to the national copyright law to enable libraries to better meet the needs of their end users.

EIFL has engaged with public libraries in Latvia resulting in innovative pilot projects that are helping libraries meet the information needs of their communities.
