ELECTRONIC LIBRARY OF UKRAINE - A SUCCESS STORY OF NATIONAL SIGNIFICANCE

electronic library On the basis of three universities in 2009, Kyiv Mohyla Foundation and Kyiv Mohyla Library established the ELibUkr project with an initial grant from USAID and Kyiv Mohyla Foundation funding. Without any further outside funding, but with support of Kyiv Mohyla Foundation, the project now includes twenty five universities, with many other institutions of higher learning waiting to join the Consortium. The only factor preventing reaching the goal of 100 universities is lack of funding. The project brings access to academic information to Ukraine's universities though a central portal. It held hundreds of trainings, conferences and seminars throughout Ukraine and it established an Association of Digital Librarians and an infrastructure for the future. Financial support is sought from the government of Ukraine, sponsors and donors.
