Quint, Barbara, Information Today


Continuing its vigorous international marketing program, EBSCO Publishing (http://www.epnet.com) has joined with the Open Society Institute, a part of the Soros Foundations Network, to create the Electronic Information for Libraries Direct (EIFL Direct) consortium. The largest information consortium in the world, EIFL Direct encompasses libraries in 39 countries. It opens up access to EBSCO Publishing's range of full-text scholarly and general interest journals.

Soros created the Soros Foundations Network to build free and open societies by supporting an array of activities dealing with art and culture, the strengthening of civil society, economic reform, education, human rights, legal reform and public administration, media and communications, and public health. …
