Information and Log-in for: Country Coordinators
EIFL in Tanzania

EIFL has been working in Tanzania since 2009. We supported the development of the Consortium of Tanzania Universities and Research Libraries (COTUL), and through this partnership, libraries in Tanzania are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.

In Tanzania, EIFL has supported national and institutional open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops that have resulted in the launch of open access publishing platforms and the creation of a number of open access repositories in the country (which continues to grow).

EIFL also engaged with public libraries in Tanzania resulting in innovative pilot projects that are helping libraries meet the information needs of their communities.
