EIFL in Belarus

EIFL has been working in Belarus since 1999. We supported the creation of the Council of Belarusian Libraries on Information Cooperation (BelCoLib),  and through this partnership, libraries in Belarus are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.

In Belarus, EIFL has supported national and institutional open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops which resulted in the launch of open access journals, repositories, as well as the launch of an open access portal.

EIFL has also advocated for revisions to the national copyright law to enable libraries to better meet the needs of their end users.
