Using Social Media to Create Virtual Interest Groups in Hospital Libraries

Lin, Yongtao (Tom Baker Knowledge Centre); Ranjit, Kathryn M.E. (Peter Lougheed Knowledge Centre); GreyNet, Grey Literature Network Service (2011)
Introduction - Social networking has positively impacted the realm of human interactivity. Libraries have traditionally been viewed as a place for research and information seeking. Web 2.0 technologies, such as blogs and Instant Messaging (IM), are starting to change users' experiences of current library services. In this quality improvement study we aim to examine whether the opportunity for enhanced researcher-librarian interaction that Web 2.0 tools provide creates a synergistic experien...

Grey Literature in Energy: 5 Years Later

Cutler, Deborah E. (OSTI-DOE); GreyNet, Grey Literature Network Service (2004)
At GL'99, the Department of Energy's Office of Scientific and Technical Information (DOE OSTI) presented a paper titled "Grey Literature in Energy: a Shifting Paradigm". Five years later, the paradigm continues to shift, less radically than the change from paper and microfiche to electronic, but with significant benefit to users worldwide. OSTI's efforts continue this shift, moving even further away from the connotation of "grey" as meaning "hard to get" literature. Along with its domestic an...

Expanding the Horizon of Grey Literature

Mackenzie Owen, John (UvA); GreyNet, Grey Literature Network Service (1998)
Grey literature - loosely defined as information distributed directly by its creator - is gaining importance due to the development of digital information networks. Individuals and organizations are using these networks, making vast amounts of information available on a global scale. The role and added value of traditional publishers and libraries is being questioned. Some argue that grey literature will become more important than published literature; others disagree. During the Third Intern...

Grey literature in French digital repositories: a survey

Schöpfel, Joachim (University of Lille 3); Stock, Christiane (INIST-CNRS); GreyNet, Grey Literature Network Service (2008)
The impact of open archives on the availability and selection of scientific and technical information is growing. Yet, there is little empirical evidence on the deposit and processing of grey literature in digital repositories. The purpose of this communication is to provide a survey on grey literature in French open archives, e.g. institutional and subject-based digital repositories. The survey is based on a selection of 40 representative French digital repositories. The different archives a...

Access to Multicultural/Multiethnic Grey Literature : A Networked Approach African American Resources

Evans, V. Tessa Perry (Rutgers University Libraries); GreyNet, Grey Literature Network Service (1998)
Multicultural/multiethnic grey literature is a concept first introduced and defined at the GL'95. Multicultural-multiethnic GL, although considered primary resources, have been fragmented and scattered or buried within other reports and documents making them difficult to identify and access. If these materials are to be of any real value, they must be located, organized, and made accessible to the communities they represent as well as to the general public. GL'95 presentations focused on the ...

Aloia, Danielle (NYAM); Naughton, Robin (NYAM); GreyNet, Grey Literature Network Service (2016)
The Grey Literature Report produced by the New York Academy of Medicine supports efforts of researchers, health practitioners, and policy makers in urban and public health by curating, preserving and providing access to high quality, cutting edge research. Grey literature is continually being added to systematic reviews and evidence-based practice in the health sciences. It is also being called upon as an area of research that needs to be disseminated and communicated effectively. This resear...

An Architecture for Grey Literature in a R&D Context

Jefferey, Keith G. (CLRC); GreyNet, Grey Literature Network Service (2000)
The importance of Grey Literature is becoming increasingly recognised. For many organisations it encapsulates the knowledge and know-how and thus is a vital business asset. It has similar importance in quality of life aspects-healthcare, environment and culture. Grey Literature in a R&D environment represents the cutting edge of this knowledge and so its management is of utmost importance. Partly based on involvement in defining the datamodels for R&D information interchange across Europe, th...

Trends in Publishing Academic Grey Literature : Examples from Economics

Mili, Fethy (Universite de Montreal); GreyNet, Grey Literature Network Service (2000)
What impact might electronic publishing have on grey literature? This work tries to give some answers based on changes in the publishing of economics research preprints or working-paper series. Institutions and some members of the economics community have created archives to facilitate access to working papers. In this document, we evaluate the prospects for electronic publishing of economics preprints using an inventory of material available from institutions' web sites. Also the paper conta...

Data Analytics: The Next Big Thing in Information

Crowe, June (IIa); Candlish, J.R. (IIa); GreyNet, Grey Literature Network Service (2013)
Information is now available in an overabundance, so much so, that distinguishing the noise from the signal has become very problematic. In the past, the collection and storage of information was the primary issue. Currently, there are massive amounts of data both structured and unstructured, that need to be analyzed in an iterative, as well as in a time sensitive manner. In response to this need, data analytical tools/services have emerged as a means to solve this problem. Grey literature...
