EIFL in Poland

EIFL has been working in Poland since 1999. We engaged with the Poznan Foundation of Scientific Libraries,  and through this partnership, libraries in Poland are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources.

In Poland, EIFL has supported national and institutional open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops. We have also supported the launch of the Open Science Library, which provides tools and a platform for publishing OA monographs, as well as the launch of an open access advocacy website and e-learning course.  

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