OA Librarian - New Collaborative Open Access Blog

.: Andrew Waller, U Calgary, posted an e-mail to Jerome-l regarding a new collaborative blog on open access issues, called OA Librarian. From his e-mail:

OA Librarian is a new, cooperatively produced weblog, which combines a pathfinder function with news and commentary on open access and librarianship. Please visit us here: http://oalibrarian.blogspot.com/

Under OA Resources on the right-hand side of the page, you’ll find links to free open access resources in Library and Information Science: the LIS journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals, and two open archives for LIS: E-LIS and D-LIST. There are also links to bibliographies and advocacy tools.

Postings vary widely: news items pertinent to librarians, relevant conference presentations, and other blogs or resources about open access developed by librarians.

One theme of OA Librarian is highlighting the work of librarians who advocate for Open Access. Recent articles focus on Antonella de Robbio, the originator of E-LIS; Anita Coleman, the driving force behind DLIST; and Charles W. Bailey, Jr., the author of the Open Access Bibliography: Liberating Scholarly Literature with E-Prints
and Open Access Journals.
