EIFL is delighted to welcome Angola as our newest partner country.
EIFL will be partnering with Angola´s Network of Media Libraries (ReMA), a network of six public media libraries in Angola to work on the creation of a national consortium, something that is already underway.
There are currently around 35 universities, both public and private, in the country.
ReMA, a network that is a programme of the Government of Angola, has plans to launch 19 more media libraries in all regions of the country.
When asked why they were interested in joining EIFL, Lania da Silva, Coordinator at ReMA, stated:
‘Libraries in Angola are not yet well developed, and there are no mechanisms for cooperation between different types of libraries,’ she explained.
