The British Library In December 1978, the British Library hosted the York Seminar. This event led to the establishment of EAGLE, the European Association for Grey Literature Exploitation and its SIGLE-database. Through the years, The British Library contributed 40% of SIGLE’s more than 800,000 records. This year, 30 years on, it will not go unnoticed that The British Library is represented on the GL10 Program Committee and that BL is one of the start sponsors to this international S&T event. Every researcher and practitioner, student and academic knows that a great deal of valuable information is never published in the conventional way. Refined and edited versions may appear after a lengthy delay in journal articles or in books, but in many cases the original report or paper is the only source. These documents are often difficult to identify and acquire through normal bookselling channels and, for this reason, are sometimes referred to as ‘grey literature’.
For the Sixth year running, the Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (INIST) a subsidiary of CNRS, the National Centre for Scientific Research in France sponsors the GL Conference Series. INIST houses a huge library with extensive collections available to the public through document delivery services. Indexing services are also provided for (grey) literature in Science, Technology, Medicine, Humanities, and the Social Sciences. These services are designed to contribute to bibliographic databases. INIST's Information services are available online, as well as in a variety of electronic formats and media. A recent development is their memSIC, Open Archive on Theses in Information Science. It is an honor to have this national institute in the forefront of grey literature.
