EIFL has been working in Armenia since 1999. We supported the creation of the Electronic Library Consortium of Armenia (ELCA), and through this partnership, libraries in Armenia are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.
In Armenia, EIFL has supported national and institutional open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops which resulted in the launch of open access journals, repositories, as well as the launch of an open access portal. We have also advocated for revisions to the national copyright law to enable libraries to better meet the needs of their end users.
EIFL has engaged with public libraries in Armenia resulting in innovative pilot projects that are helping libraries meet the information needs of their communities.
