ABSTRACT

Grey literature is a non-public data only for nonprofit users. Some of the major grey literatures are technical report, proceeding, and thesis. For their promptitude, these sources are core of research and development. According to a research on the academic quality, grey literatures have higher usage rates than books--articles excluded. Also, the usage of foreign grey literature by librarians of research organization was investigated. The result was that over 90 percent of the researchers were demanding the original text of the foreign grey literature. In addition, librarians pointed out that the time-consuming problem and the lack of published information was a hindrance to using grey literature. For the centralized management of grey literature, they wanted an alliance structure.
