WE NEGOTIATE AFFORDABLE ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY PRODUCTS
Two women using laptop computers outdoors, in a rural setting, to access their library's licensed e-resources.
Among the technology products available through EIFL is a service that enables scholars to access e-resources licensed by their libraries remotely.

THE CHALLENGE

New tools have been developed to improve the quality and ease of research and for librarians to support researchers in their work.

Some of these tools are not affordable in EIFL partner countries; others are free but people are not aware of them.

To address this issue, the EIFL Licensing Programme negotiates with vendors of technology products for discounted pricing and organizes webinars introducing free tools.

TECHNOLOGY PRODUCTS
Three technology products from two vendors are available through the EIFL Licensing programme.
