Step 1: Based on requests and feedback from its partner library consortia, EIFL negotiates multi-year framework agreements with publishers and content aggregators. Browse EIFL-licensed e-resources.
Step 2: EIFL signs contracts with each publisher to secure the prices negotiated for a specific resource, using the EIFL Model Licences as a base. View our model licences.
Step 3: EIFL promotes licensed e-resources to library consortia in EIFL partner countries.
Step 4: Library consortia interested in subscribing to a particular resource sign licensing agreements directly with the publisher.
Step 5: EIFL assists library consortia during the licensing process to ensure licences are completed properly and institutions have stable and static IP addresses.
