EIFL has been working in Kyrgyzstan since 1999. We supported the creation of the Kyrgyzstan Library Information Consortium (KLIC), and as a result of the EIFL-KLIC partnership, libraries in Kyrgyzstan are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.
EIFL has helped raise awareness about open access through workshops and support for advocacy. We have also provided advanced training and a support service to raise awareness about library copyright issues and to assist with copyright questions.
EIFL also engaged with public libraries in Kyrgyzstan, supporting an innovative project to enable libraries to meet health information needs in their communities.
