Usage & savings statistics
December 2017

Each year, EIFL compiles savings and usage statistics for e-resources available through the EIFL Licensing Programme. The annual reports enable you to review the savings made on EIFL-licensed e-resources, and to compare usage statistics and costs per download for different e-resources and across different institutions, during a single year. The reports are produced following extensive liaison with publishers to establish the standard list prices for their e-resources, and the amount for which they invoiced institutions in eligible EIFL countries. We encourage EIFL Country and Licensing coordinators to share country-specific information with members, government ministries and donors to raise awareness about how EIFL-licensed e-resources save costs, and to support fundraising and advocacy initiatives.
