EIFL has been working in Namibia since 2013. We supported the creation of the Namibia Library Consortium (NALICO), and through this partnership, libraries in Namibia are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources. EIFL agreements with publishers also allow authors in Namibia to publish in open access in hybrid or fully open access journals at waived or discounted Article Processing Charges (APCs).
We have also advocated for revisions to the national copyright law to enable libraries to better meet the needs of their end users.
EIFL partnered with Namibia Library and Archives Service (NLAS) in a two-year project to strengthen continuous professional development of public librarians. The partnership led to the establishment of new public library services using digital technology to serve community needs.
