Gray Literature

Fade Library, the library service of Liverpool Primary Care Trust, offers a blog tracking gray literature on health topics.  From their home page:

What is Grey Literature?
“Information produced on all levels of government, academics, business and industry in electronic and print formats not controlled by commercial publishing i.e. where publishing is not the primary activity of the producing body.” (Luxembourg, 1997 – Expanded in New York, 2004)

Key topics of Fade Library: Bringing Information to You range from abortion to wi-fi and can be found using a dropdown box, category cloud or tag cloud.   Recent posts include information about alcohol consumption, NICE guidelines, and the Podbean podcasting service.

  1. Thanks for the link Sandy from the Fade crew over here in Liverpool. MHSLA seems like a cool network and there’s lots of good stuff here. If you want to see what an equivilent network in the UK looks like the new LIHNN website’ll let you know what we get up to in the North West over here.

    If Grey Lit’s your thing also check out Greynet

  2. Thanks for the tip! The Greynet site has several links that I found useful, and the LIHNN site was very interesting as well.
