EIFL in Kosovo

EIFL has been working in Kosovo since 1999. We supported the creation of the Association of Electronic Libraries in Kosova (AELK) and through this partnership, libraries in Kosovo are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources. EIFL agreements with publishers also allow authors in Kosovo to publish in open access in hybrid or fully open access journals at waived or discounted Article Processing Charges (APCs).

We have also provided training and a support service to raise awareness of library copyright issues, to assist with copyright questions and joined librarians in calling for copyright law amendments.
