EIFL in Zimbabwe

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

In Zimbabwe, EIFL has supported national and institutional open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops that have resulted in a number of open access repositories in the country (which continue to grow). Through our work, the first open access ETD (thesis and dissertations)  mandate in the country was introduced by  University of Zimbabwe, thereby opening their research to the world.

We have also provided advanced training and a support service to raise awareness of library copyright issues, and to assist with copyright questions.
