EIFL in Nepal

EIFL has been working in Nepal since 2008. We supported the creation of the Nepal Library and Information Consortium (NeLIC), and through this partnership, libraries in Nepal are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.

In Nepal, EIFL has supported national open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops which resulted in the launch of the central open access repository in Nepal.

EIFL has also engaged with public libraries in Nepal resulting in an innovative pilot project that is helping libraries meet the information needs of their communities.
