Library consortia

EIFL works to expand access to knowledge in a cost effective and sustainable way by supporting the establishment and development of strong national library consortia.

Below is a list of EIFL partner library consortia within our network. Many of the library consortia have received start-up grants from EIFL, and all have benefited from our consortium management training, consultancy and support services.

As a result of our engagement and support with library consortia, access to knowledge continues to increase and students and researchers can benefit from the latest information from around the world.
