WE ENSURE WIDESPREAD ADOPTION AND USAGE OF LICENSED E-RESOURCES
Representatives from Ivory Coast, Senegal and Congo discuss e-resources available through EIFL with EIFL Licensing Programme Manager, Romy Beard, at the 2019 EIFL General Assembly.

THE CHALLENGE

Research shows that often researchers, students and academics are not aware that their libraries have access to high quality e-resources. E-resources have a higher impact when libraries are fully integrated into the institutional culture of research, teaching and education.

To support libraries in maximizing access to e-resources, the EIFL Licensing Programme works closely with partner library consortia to raise awareness and increase participation and usage of e-resources.
