Grey Literature

Grey Literature, may also be spelled Gray Literature, is defined by The Fourth International Conference on Grey Literature as "That which is produced on all levels of government, academics, business and industry in print and electronic formats, but which is not controlled by commercial publishers."  

Put simply, Grey Literature is research that is often not indexed in the databases provided by libraries and is often conducted by government agencies, both foreign and domestic, and NGOs (Non-Government Organizations).  This information can be difficult to locate but includes valuable research and should be consulted for systematic literature reviews.

Grey Literature is especially dependent on the topic you are researching, so please contact me at clogan@k-state.edu to set up a research consultation if you are having trouble locating information or need help deciding where to start.
