EIFL in Malawi

EIFL has been working in Malawi since 2001.

We supported the creation of the Malawi Library and Information Consortium (MALICO) , and through this partnership, libraries in Malawi are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.

In Malawi, EIFL supported the creation of open access repositories and journals, while advocating for open access policies to be introduced. We have also advocated for revisions to the copyright law to enable libraries to better meet the needs of their end users.

In 2007, with EIFL’s support, MALICO was able to acquire four very small aperture terminal (VSAT) sets to increase internet bandwidth across higher education institutions in Malawi. With higher bandwidth, more libraries and scholars are now able to access and benefit from e-resources.
