EIFL in Lesotho

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

In Lesotho, EIFL is supporting the creation of open access repositories and the introduction of open access policies. EIFL also provided training and a support service to raise awareness of library copyright issues, and to assist with copyright questions.
