Last year our libraries couldn’t subscribe to new databases and we had to cancel subscriptions due to financial problems. However, thanks to the EIFL Licensing programme, our libraries got access to nine databases free of charge or at highly discounted rates. This has really helped us a lot and has helped our researchers to do important research referring to these databases.
