EIFL has been working in Lithuania since 1999.
We supported the creation of the Lithuanian Research Library Consortium (LMBA), and through this partnership, libraries in Lithuania are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.
In Lithuania, EIFL has supported national and institutional open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops that have resulted in the launch of an open access publishing platform which now hosts all Lithuanian journals and the creation of a number of open access repositories in the country (which continues to grow).
EIFL has provided training and a support service to raise awareness of library copyright issues, and to assist with copyright questions.
We also engaged with public libraries in Lithuania resulting in innovative pilot projects that are helping libraries meet the information needs of their communities.
