eIFL.net Digitisation Survey

Supported by: eIFL.net
Project duration: 17 June 2013 to 31 July 2013

Centre for Study of Labour and Mobility (CESLAM) at Social Science Baha coordinated a survey for eIFL.net (Electronic Information for Libraries) in Nepal. eIFL.net is an international not-for-profit organisation based in Europe that works with libraries worldwide to enable access to digital information in developing and transition countries. This survey was aimed at finding collections pertaining to emigration to the USA with the potential for digitisation as well as those that have already been digitised that could benefit from help with enhancing their web visibility. This survey was undertaken with the intent of identifying content that would allow immigrants in the USA as well as scholars to better understand the motivations for, and circumstances surrounding, emigration from Nepal.
