Index to University Sponsored Open Access Repositories to Journals and Research Materials

The BeSpacific blog (2/22/2006) points us to the
DSpace Wiki 's alphabetical listing of college and university
sponsored searchable, open source repositories, from around
the world. The list encompasses institutions' digital
research collections on a wide range of topics, including
bioethics, economics, history, the arts, information science,
and law. Examples include Cornell Law School's
repository of faculty papers and Ohio State University's
American Indian Studies collection of reports, papers
and conference proceedings.

An open access resource (OAR) may contain formal publications,
such as digital copies of journal articles or books as well as informal
publications, such as presentations, working papers, or course lecture
notes. Check individual repository web pages for details.
