Title Grey literature, institutional repositories and the organisational context
Abstract A wide variety of grey literature is produced during the work carried out at a large multidisciplinary scientific research organisation. This paper examines how the grey literature may be managed and the benefits that result. Trends in Technical Reports, which have always been an important medium for transmission of knowledge, are examined, and the use of an institutional repository is advocated for the future of the medium. Other kinds of grey literature produced in research projects are also described, and again the institutional repository is seen as an important mechanism for preserving and making accessible the knowledge they embody, particularly if it is coupled with other information systems in the organisation.
