Search for Open Access Resources, Part II

Last week I posted a list with Open Access resources, some focused on resources for students, and others with digital content with no set audience, only the goal of cultural stewardship. I recently subscribed to ACRL (Association of College & Research Libraries)- Choice Webinars YouTube Channel. Anyone can sign up to participate in the live webinars or watch the archived videos. Topics range from digital preservation to LibGuides best practices.  So while the presenters are academic professionals, the topics covered can be helpful for many different information professionals. During the digital preservation training, the presenters mentioned OpenDOAR– a directory of Open Access Repositories. The international database’s goal is to fill the need for a “… single comprehensive and authoritative list which records academic open access repositories.” An ambitious goal and an incredible eResource.
