Grey literature is an important resource for scholarly research, and relevant to every discipline. This type of scholarly resource is often overlooked when conducting research, yet provides a richness of unique content, and often more current than commercial publications. This book describes the importance of and a holistic approach to implement grey literature in library collections.
The further rise of electronic publishing has come to change the scale and diversity of grey literature facing librarians and other information practitioners. This compiled work brings together research and authorship over the past decade dealing with both the supply and demand sides of grey literature. While this book is written with students and instructors of Colleges and Schools of Library and Information Science in mind, it likewise serves as a reader for information professionals working in any and all like knowledge-based communities.ISBN 978-3-598-11793-0
