Eleventh International Conference on Grey Literature Library of Congress, Washington D.C., USA December 14-15, 2009
Over the past 15 years, Grey Literature has developed from a millennium movement to a well defined field in information studies. This process has been considerably influenced and shaped by results of research issuing from the International Conference Series on Grey Literature. The Eleventh Conference in this series will endeavor to piece together traditional features inherent to grey literature with more recent elements both technology and policy driven. In any field of science and technology, information and knowledge aggregated in research must be made available beyond the limits of any one specific information community, and as such, should be openly accessible to net citizens. This principle related to grey literature, requires that its uses and applications in diverse subject areas benefit information society as a whole. Furthermore, net citizens must acquire a sense of safeguard and security that the grey resources on which they come to rely have passed some level of corporate governance. In piecing the various components and facets of grey literature together, GL11 hopes to depict a virtual image of the Grey Mosaic.
