The number of paid subscriptions to e-resources in EIFL partner countries increased by over 16% from 2016 to 2017.
Research shows that often researchers, students and academics are not aware that their libraries have access to high quality e-resources. E-resources have a higher impact when libraries are fully integrated into the institutional culture of research, teaching and education.
To support libraries in maximizing access to e-resources, the EIFL Licensing Programme works closely with partner library consortia to raise awareness and increase participation and usage of e-resources.
There were more than 5.8 million full text downloads from EIFL-licensed resources in 2017.
