GL-Compendium

Mapping Grey Literature Resources on the Information Landscape

“GL-Compendium (GLC) is designed to guide practitioners and inform researchers and educators in their search for and access to grey literature. GLC is an international, multi-disciplinary one-stop source of valuable grey literature. It taps into web-based resources and collections – harvesting their links and further classifying them. GLC provides a unique current awareness resource for LIS practitioners and professionals. GLC grew out of the GreySource Index, a popular web-based product. However, while GLC maintains the same classification scheme, it does not require specific reference to the term grey literature.”
