EIFL in Botswana

EIFL has been working in Botswana since 2001. We supported the creation of the Botswana Libraries Consortium (BLC), and through this partnership, libraries in Botswana are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.

In Botswana, EIFL has been advocating for open access policies to be introduced by research funders and universities in the country. EIFL has also raised awareness on library copyright issues through training and a support service that assisted with copyright questions.
