EIFL works with libraries and other partners around the world to increase access to knowledge for research and sustainable community development. One of the programmes run by the organisation, the Public Library Innovation Programme, gives small grants to public libraries in developing countries to implement community development services using information and communication technology (ICT). The programme supports 37 services in 22 countries, as well as studies to evaluate their impact. Projects include using mobile phones to deliver health messages to communities, and providing farmers with access to libraries' online resources on market prices and farm technology. The website publishes news, information on grants, events, case studies and information about the impacts of projects.
