This journal article looks at digital collecting of public policy resources such as reports, discussion papers, evaluations and datasets (also known as grey literature) which is still very low in Australia and as a result users find it difficult and time consuming to access the research resources they need.
Do you use government reports, academic working papers, discussion papers, etc for your work? If so we'd love to hear from you so we can find ways to improve their access and use - and save you time and effort.
No longer are publishers the primary conduit through which content must pass before it is disseminated to the world. This is a radically new paradigm and despite our best efforts, libraries (and many other related institutions) have not been able to keep pace with the impact this shift has had on collection development and long term access.
