Open Access Bibliography: Liberating Scholarly Literature with E-Prints and Open Access Journals. By Charles W. Bailey. Washington, D.C.: Association of Research Libraries, 2005. 105p. $45.00 paper (ISBN 1-59407-670-7).
Open access has been gaining momentum lately, from the National Institute of Health's mandate to Harvard University's resolution on open access. Those wishing to learn more about the open access movement would be well served by turning to Bailey's Open Access Bibliography. A lot of material has been published about open access over the past few years, and Bailey has amassed more than 1,300 citations. They include a variety of sources, such as journal articles, newspapers, conference proceedings, and e-prints. Most are dated between 1999 and 2004, and a large percentage of the entries (78 percent) link to freely available resources. These URLs were last checked on August 31, 2004 (presumably right before publication).
