EIFL has been working in Georgia since 1999. We engaged with the development of the Georgian Integrated Library Information System Consortium (GILISC) 2017, and through this partnership libraries in Georgia are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources. EIFL agreements with publishers also allow authors in Georgia to publish in open access in hybrid or fully open access journals at waived or discounted Article Processing Charges (APCs).
EIFL has supported national and institutional open access awareness raising and advocacy events. EIFL support also helped to build open access publishing capacity at GILISC 2017 member institutions and contributed to improving the national publishing platform for open access journals.
We have also provided training and a support service to raise awareness of library copyright issues, and to assist with copyright questions.
