Listen with webreader

eIFL.net is an international not-for-profit organization building partnerships with libraries around the world to enable sustainable access to high quality digital information for people in developing and transition countries.  Like SPARC in the U.S., eIFL.net was originallystarted to address the serials pricing crisis in  academic and research libraries in Central and Eastern Europe. eIFL.net currently partners with libraries and library consortia in over 45 developing and transition countries in Africa, Asia and Europe with common goals of leveraging open knowledge for local prosperity and increasing educational opportunities.
