Connecting communities to vital information
Information is critical to development, yet most people in developing countries do not have access to the internet or the vast stores of information it offers. Public libraries are uniquely placed to provide ICT access: there are over 230,000 public libraries in developing countries; they are known and trusted in their communities; they are staffed by librarians trained to find support people seeking information.
EIFL-PLIP helps connect communities in developing countries to information through public libraries. We do this by enabling public libraries to use ICT to offer innovative information services focused on crucial community development needs: agriculture, health, economic development, education, and supporting social inclusion and development of marginalized and vulnerable communities.
