• The EIFL Draft Law on Copyright (2016) is a practical guide to assist librarians, as well as their legal advisors and policy-makers, when national laws are being updated.

• EIFL's popular guide to the Marrakesh Treaty for persons with print disabilities, The Marrakesh Treaty: an EIFL Guide for Libraries is available in eight languages.
