The  Grey  Mosaic
Piecing It All Together

 Eleventh International Conference on Grey Literature
 Library of Congress, Washington D.C., USA
 December 14-15, 2009

Conference Announcement

Over the past 15 years, Grey Literature has developed from a millennium
movement to a well defined field in information studies. This process has
been considerably influenced and shaped by results of research issuing
from the International Conference Series on Grey Literature. The Eleventh
Conference in this series will endeavor to piece together traditional
features inherent to grey literature with more recent elements both
technology and policy driven. In any field of science and technology,
information and knowledge aggregated in research must be made available
beyond the limits of any one specific information community, and as such,
should be openly accessible to net citizens. This principle related to
grey literature, requires that its uses and applications in diverse
subject areas benefit information society as a whole. Furthermore, net
citizens must acquire a sense of safeguard and security that the grey
resources on which they come to rely have passed some level of corporate
governance. In piecing the various components and facets of grey
literature together, GL11 hopes to depict a virtual image of the Grey
