Penang Conference room, Level 3, Swinburne University of Technology Library, John St Hawthorn.
An Open Access week seminar presented in partnership between Swinburne University Library and Policy Online

The production of digital grey literature is transforming how the community is able to access research and information, particularly for public policy and public interest issues, and is a key part of the changing information ecosystem. Researchers from Swinburne University will discuss the role and value of grey literature as an open access resource and present some findings from the Grey literature strategies ARC Linkage project.

The Pisa Delcaration on Grey Literature was developed at a forum held in Pisa, Italy in May 2014 and has now been made public with a call for signatories to show their support. Read the full text here or click here to sign the declaration.

Presentation slides from the Grey Literature Strategies seminar held at the National Library of Australia on 19 March 2014 are now available.

We recently received a lovely email from Jess Tyndall, Medical Librarian at Flinder's University with a report on the adoption of her appraisal checklist for evaluating grey literature - AACODS - by major health organisations in the UK. Congratulations to Jess on her influential work and the joy of serendipity, conversation and connections.
