FLICC Presents: GreyWorks 2010 - Transparency Governs the Grey Landscape Monday, August 9, 2010 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. (To view the meeting announcement, point your browser to http://www.loc.gov/flicc/meeting_announcements/2010/ma201025.pdf) The needs and demands of the "Information Society" are in constant state of change and flux. Information overload and loss, information on demand and on the net, information stored and warehoused, are among many factors confronting information professionals, practitioners and researchers daily. To a great extent, grey literature is the cause of all this. For the past two decades, grey literature has grown exponentially in relation to commercially published literature. Grey literature is information produced on all levels of government, academics, business and industry that is not distributed or indexed by commercial publishers. At this FLICC event on grey literature, participants will take a journey into the grey in four modules: ~ Introduction to Grey Literature Background, Definition, Document Types, Collections, Standardization, Classification ~ Supply-Side of Grey Literature Production, Publishing, Authors, Researchers, Metadata, Ownership, Copyright, Review Process ~ Demand-Side of Grey Literature Use, Usage, Users, Access, Search and Retrieval, Repositories, Document Delivery ~ Future Trends in Grey Literature Open Access, Preservation, Policy Development, Networking, Education and Training Each module will mix formal presentation, exercises, and informal discussion of the findings. During the wrap-up of the workshop the group will develop a consensus document about the current status and future for Grey Literature throughout various fields and institutions. (This class was offered in 2009 under the title of "Going into the Grey: Benchmarks and Forecasts on Grey Literature".)
