WorldBank Opens Up

Just a very quick post.  The World bank has adopted an open access policy, created an Open Knowledge Repository, and adopted some creative commons licenses (Find out more).  This policy change helps to increase popular access to a high level of research and data for those who may not have had the resources to access it before.  This decision also illustrates the importance of digital tools such as Institutional Repositories for research and information access.  If you are interested in Institutional Repositories (IRs) Hunter College Libraries will be having a event surrounding IRs and CUNY 25 April 2011.    For more information feel free to contact me at jca0033*AT*hunter*dot*cuny*dot*edu
