EIFL has been working in Sudan since 2003. We engaged with the Sudanese Research and Education Network SudREN (previously SUIN), and through this partnership, libraries in Sudan are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources. EIFL agreements with publishers also allow authors in Sudan to publish in open access in hybrid or fully open access journals at waived or discounted Article Processing Charges (APCs).
In 2014 Sudanese Academic Libraries Consortium (SALC) was established.
EIFL also supported open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops that have resulted in the launch of open access repositories.
