The Elsevier Foundation has supported the Medical Library Association's Librarians Without Borders program since 2007. In Swaziland, Librarians Without Borders together with ITOCA (Information Training and Outreach Centre for Africa) train librarians, doctors and teachers at the University of Swaziland.
Since its launch, Librarians Without Borders has equipped hundreds of information professionals and researchers in dozens of developing countries with the necessary skills to navigate all the online scientific resources available to university and health communities through programs such as Research4LIfe.
