MALC Activities

Advocacy with policy makers

MALC raises awareness of decision-makers about the needs of academic libraries and advocates for infrastructure improvements.

Licensing of e-resources

More than 55 e-resources from over 20 vendors are available to the members of MALC. The e-resources include journals, e-books, databases, reference works and aggregated databases, and newspapers. If your library is interested in subscribing to any of these products, please contact us at

Collection of usage statistics of e-resources

MALC monitors usage of licensed e-resources and consults members about renewal of e-resources.


Librarians of MALC member institutions are invited to participate in all training organised by MALC. From 2016-2018 member libraries participated in workshops on library management, leadership, collection development policy, licensing of e-resources, open access, copyright, and information literacy. In addition, a three-month English language course for librarians was organised in 2018.  

Upon joining the consortium, new member libraries are offered the following training: introduction to e-resources and basic computer literacy skills.


MALC organizes study tours and internships for librarians, so that they will gain experience and learn from other MALC member libraries.
