Open Access. Grey Literature

For some major general sources of open access e-books and e-journals please see the Library's Open Access Content page

Grey literature is information not produced by commercial publishers. It includes research reports, working papers, conference proceedings, theses, preprints, white papers, and reports produced by government departments, academics, business and industry. It can be hard to track down, but the resources listed below are good starting points, and see also the links to think tank/NGO policy reports here.
